Woman tries to run over sisters during jealous rage | Crime
A 24-year-old woman will eventually face charges after a fit of rage and jealousy ended in her using her car to strike strike two women and a parked car, according to the Madison Police Department.
Police said the two sisters had van trouble on Tuesday afternoon in a Troy Drive parking lot on Madison's north side. One of the sisters called for a friend to come and help out.
When the man showed up to give the van a jump-start, he hugged one of the sisters, police said. They said once the man's girlfriend saw the hug, she got out of the vehicle, ran over to her boyfriend and began pulling his hair. She then grabbed the tire jack and demanded the keys to her car, which was going to be used to give the van a jump-start, police said.
The angry girlfriend took the keys, got behind the wheel of her car and accelerated toward the 27-year-old sister that had hugged her boyfriend, police said. They said the vehicle struck the woman causing her to roll up on the hood of the car.
The concerned younger sister tried to push her sister out of the way after the driver backed up and came at her again, but this time the sister was hit again pushing her up onto the hood of the car and into the windshield. The force of the contact also caused the sister who was trying to help to get stuck in the driver's side window, police said.
Both sisters suffered minor injuries, police said.
All of the craziness likely made for some interesting bedtime discussions, as a responding officer noted at least a dozen preschool age children were in the parking lot when this all happened.
The woman drove away from the scene with the car's bumper dragging behind. Her car was later recovered and towed, but the woman remains at large, police said.
Once found, she will be arrested on two charges of first-degree reckless endangerment, domestic disorderly conduct while armed, hit-and-run and trespass, police said.
