Woman Arrested After Her Ram Pickup was Demolished by Ford Truck
SAN ANGELO, TX — A driver of a Ram pickup was sent to jail after the truck she was driving was hit by a Ford pickup making a lane change on S. Abe St. at 8:45 p.m. Saturday night.
The crash wasn’t the Ram driver’s fault, but according to the San Angelo police, she had a county warrant for her arrest. She knew she was going in from the second she stepped out of her wrecked Ram.
Police said the two trucks were southbound on Abe. The Ram was in the inside lane, the Ford in a center lane. The Ram may have been in the Ford pickup driver’s blind spot, police said, but that was no excuse. The Ford driver was attempting to make a left turn out of nowhere into a parking lot, across the inside lane and in front of the Ram.
The wanted Ram driver had no time to avoid the collision.
The impact deployed the Ram’s airbags and the truck’s front end was badly damaged. The Ford was damaged as well (see pics).
The driver of the Ford was issued a citation for unsafe lane change. The driver of the Ram was booked into the county jail for an outstanding warrant.
It wasn’t her day.
