State Police say a woman in Olean was arrested after claiming she was her sister during a traffic stop.

Troopers say Kelly Crawford, 36, was stopped in Porterville for speeding and having tinted windows. She told troopers she did not have a driver's license or photo ID with her at the time.

Crawford gave the interviewing trooper her sister's name and date of birth, according to officials. Upon further investigation, troopers discovered her real name.

Officials say Crawford's license was revoked and she was arrested and taken to SP Olean for processing.

Crawford was charged with criminal impersonation, aggravated unlicensed driving, and vehicle and traffic violations.

She is expected to appear in court in June.
