A woman drove her car into a victim who was trying to take her child for treatment of alleged abuse, according to police.
This week, police in Texarkana, Texas, responded to a reported crash at an apartment complex.
When officers arrived, they found the crash was not an accident, according to police. A witness said they were trying to leave in a car with a 5-month-old boy to take him to the hospital as he was injured.
But, Charquevya Kirkendall, 22, allegedly rammed their vehicle with her car to try to stop them from leaving with her child, police noted.
