BERLIN, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut woman has had her car towed twice due to a glitch in the Department of Motor Vehicles website.

Peggy Levesque tells WFSB-TV (https://bit.ly/2sfYKQe ) her registration, taxes and car payments are all up to date. Still, she has woken up to her car being towed from her Bristol apartment complex twice.

Her apartment complex has a partnership with a local auto body shop which may use information from the DMV website to tow cars.

The first time her car was towed, Levesque says the website showed her registration as “canceled or void.” Six months later, her car was towed again after the website showed her car as unregistered.

The DMV says the error should not happen again.

Levesque has been reimbursed by the state for her towing fees.
