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