Police have arrested a Randolph County woman who allegedly ran over another woman on Ward Road following an altercation last week.

Sara Daniels, 22, address unknown, has been charged with one felony count of malicious wounding, according to the criminal complaint in the Randolph County Magistrate Clerk's Office.

Daniels is accused of purposely striking Maureen Miller, 36, address unknown, with her car Oct. 11 on Ward Road.

The complaint states that Randolph County Sheriff's Deputy B.A. Talkington responded to a reported motor vehicle accident around 9:25 p.m. When he arrived on scene, he found Miller lying in a driveway, where she was being treated by Randolph County EMS.

Miller was subsequently flown to Ruby Memorial Hospital via HealthNet, although she was no longer registered as a patient at the hospital as of Oct. 12, according to a previous report.

On Oct. 11, Talkington took a statement from Miller in which she claimed she had been driving on Ward Road when another vehicle began following her closely and almost struck her several times. Miller turned into a driveway and stopped her vehicle, according to the police report.

At that point, Daniels allegedly exited the vehicle she had been driving, walked over to the window of Miller's car and began punching her in the face and pulling her hair. Daniels also reportedly removed Miller's keys from the ignition.

Miller then got out of her car in an attempt to run away from Daniels; however, Daniels got back into the car she had been driving and struck Miller, knocking her backward to the ground, police said.

Miller was able to stand up, but Daniels proceeded to strike Miller a second time, knocking her into bushes and over an embankment, according to the complaint.

Miller told Talkington that during the course of the alleged attack, Daniels was saying, "You can have that (expletive)! I don't want him anymore!" Daniels was referring to a man to whom Milller was or had been married, according to the report. Miller reportedly said Daniels has a child with the same man.

Daniels was lodged in the Tygart Valley Regional Jail on a $10,000 bond awaiting a preliminary hearing as of presstime Monday.
