Woman Hits Motorcyclist, Claims God Was Driving Her Car
Two accidents caused when motorist let God take the wheel
An Indiana woman who ran over a motorcyclist and hit a truck told police she wasn't at the wheel at the time of the crash. God was.
Prionda Hill was driving down Jefferson Boulevard in Fort Wayne, Indiana, when a voice she believed to be from God whispered "I'll take it from here." After her hands left the steering wheel her 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix almost immediately smashed into 47-year-old Anthony Oliveri's Harley-Davison, leaving him with deep gashes, bruises, road burns and two broken ribs. Oliveri told the Journal-Gazette he was only traveling 20 miles per hour, but Hill hit him hard enough to almost knock his boots off.
Hill went on to hit a Ford Ranger before coming to rest between two fast food restaurants several blocks away, according to the News-Sentinal. Hill told police she had tried to stop earlier, but couldn't, even though there was nothing mechanically wrong with her car.
Hill faces charges of failure to stop after an accident resulting in injury or death, criminal recklessness and two counts of criminal mischief.
