HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) - Police say a Long Island woman kept crashing her pickup truck into a car with a man inside till she hit a building, flipped over a wall and was ejected.
Morena Mctaw was arrested after the road rampage early Saturday in Hempstead.
Police say the 25-year-old man was sitting in a parked Toyota when she intentionally rear-ended him. He drove off, but police say she followed and continued to ram his car.
Mctaw eventually lost control, hitting a brick building, overturning and knocking down a wall.
She was thrown from the pickup, suffering a concussion, contusions and abrasions to her head and face.
Mctaw, 33, was arrested while being treated at a local hospital and charged with assault, reckless endangerment and criminal mischief. She was awaiting arraignment Sunday.

Most beaches in Long Island have reopened to bathing after pounding rain caused elevated bacteria levels from storm runoff prompting their closure earlier this week.
The cleanup has begun in some parts of Long Island while others continue to deal with flooding from heavy rain fall that began late Tuesday and intensified on Wednesday. Cars remain stranded after rain pounded the area. More than 13 inches of rain fell in Islip. The National Weather Service said the rain was the largest event on record for New York State in a 24-hour period.
