We now know more about what brought on a women slamming her car into a fire engine in Conway, South Carolina yesterday (Tuesday).
Sinksar Bahru Solomon was arrested after Conway police were called about 3 p.m. to Founders Drive and S.C. 544 near CCU for a report of reckless driving, police said.
Horry County dispatch told Conway police CCU authorities were requesting they arrive as soon as possible because Solomon was becoming irate and combative, according to the report.
Arriving Conway police spoke with a CCU officer who said that a white Pontiac Sunfire struck an Horry County firetruck on Founders Drive. The driver then got out of the car and hit the CCU officer in the chest with her fist after he asked her for identification, the report states.
A witness told officers the woman was driving down S.C. 544 towards the beach, parked her car near the intersection and got out and started talking to a woman firefighter.
The witness told the firefighter she was “sick of the police harassing me,” and the firefighter responded “I’m a firefighter, ma’am.”
That’s when Solomon reportedly got back into her car, put it in reverse and stopped in the intersection. When firefighters got out of the truck the witness said she started screaming and cursing and put the car in drive, appearing to try to hit the fire fighters. The witness said she missed the firefighters and hit the fire truck head on.
