Florida Woman Accused of Hitting Woman With Car Says She Meant to Hit Someone Else
A massive mistake was made by a woman who allegedly slammed her car into a woman and child in Pompano Beach, Florida.
The driver, Phedeline St. Felix, was behind the wheel of the car, took out a section of fence before driving onto a playground and hitting Chauda McCleod and her 3-year-old grandson.
“They were on the other side and it was a fight, so we started to get all of the kids to get them out of the park, because we saw the situation was getting worse and worse,” McCleod explained to WPLG.
Phedeline told the news channel she went to the park to settle an argument with another woman and things got heated.
“I was attempting to run her over, but then I see someone put her out of the way,” she said.
Instead, McCleod said Phedeline's car came barreling toward her.
“I was just running to my grand baby,” McCleod said. “Had I not picked him up, she would have ran completely over him and he would have been under the car. As I’m picking him up, she’s just hitting us both and we just went flying over the car and finally we hit the ground.”
“I was trying to find the brakes,” Phedeline said. “I couldn’t find the brakes. I didn’t mean to hit them, it was an accident and I hope they are OK.”
A judge ruled Phedeline is not to have contact with any victims involved with the situation.
McCleod's 3-year-old grandson sustained injuries to his leg and she herself required staples. She says the grandson doesn't want to go to the park anymore.
