“It kind of caught the right front of the vehicle and the blade kind of went down the passenger’s side of the vehicle, spun the vehicle out. So fortunately it wasn’t a true head on, it was more of a glancing blow,” Cpl. Nicholas A. Carnival said.

Authorities said says Rodriguez was driving on a revoked license and is a habitual traffic offender. They put her in handcuffs because they said she was being uncooperative during their investigation.
