St. Petersburg, FL — A teenager in Florida is facing murder charges after being accused of intentionally driving her car into a crowd of people.
According to reports, 18-year-old Shatavia Hall and her sister were involved in an outdoors fight with several other people.
After the fight broke up, police say that Hall and her sister got into a Pontiac Grand Am which Hall drove over a curb and into a yard and toward a group of at least five people who had remained after the fight.
Some were able to jump out of the way, but three others were not as lucky and were struck by Hall. Othel Dawson, 70, was hit along with his 13-year-old grandson who was flipped over the vehicle. Another child was also hit, but no one suffered any serious injuries.
Witnesses say Hall could be heard laughing as she drove away from the scene. Police would arrest her an hour later at her home. She has been charged with three counts of attempted murder. Her sister has not been charged.Tags: Crime, fight, Florida, Hit and Run, Shatavia Hall
