    LYNDONVILLE — A St. Johnsbury woman accused of hitting a police chief with her car during a torch run for Special Olympics Vermont has denied the charges.

    Sixty-seven-year-old Sandra Raynor pleaded not guilty Wednesday to careless and negligent operation of a motor vehicle and disorderly conduct, both misdemeanors.

    Police say that Raynor said she didn’t want to wait when she saw the runners, a police cruiser and a fire truck coming down the street that she wanted to cross on June 6.

    Lyndonville Police Chief Jack Harris, who was not in uniform and was one of the runners, said when he tried to stop her from driving through the procession, she drove off and brushed against him with her car.

    She was arrested a short time later.
