NORWALK, Conn. — A 29-year-old driver intentionally struck a woman with her car Monday night after an argument over her driving, Norwalk police said.
The woman was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries to her right foot, ankle and head, police said.
The incident began when the victim and her daughter were passengers in a car driven by Shannon Landa, police said. While Landa was driving, the victim became concerned that Landa was not driving safely, police said.
The victim decided to get out of the vehicle at the intersection of Cedar and Reed streets, police said. As the victim walked around the front of the car, Landa accelerated and hit the victim, police said.
The victim’s daughter then got out of the vehicle, and Landa took off, police said.
Officers went to Landa’s house, where her husband told them that Landa was in the Marvin Senior Center parking lot, police said.
When officers arrived at the lot, Landa refused to get out of the car without a warrant, police said. She began reversing her car and then moved forward a few feet, police said.
Officers eventually removed Landa from her vehicle and placed her under arrest, police said.
Police also said Landa was driving without the correct license plate.
Landa was arrested and charged with interfering with an officer, evading responsibility, improper use of a license plate, second-degree assault and risk of injury to a minor, police said.
Landa’s bond was set at $25,000 with a court date of Aug. 9, police said.
