Woman arrested after Long Island road rampage

Posted: Updated:

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.
