Hailey Wulz tells KREM-TV she plans to contest the negligent driving citation.
Wulz says she had just dropped off a friend early on Nov. 1 when she swerved to avoid the gorilla. KREM reports she crashed into a parked car and the crash pushed both vehicles into a yard.
KREM says police report that two witnesses claim the woman was speeding through the 25 mile-an-hour zone.
The driver says she did what she thought was right by swerving. And she says it would be nice if the gorilla came forward "so everything didn't fall on me."
