Stafford County woman charged in reported ramming incident on I-95
A Stafford County woman is facing charges after police say she repeatedly rammed her car into another car while driving along Interstate 95 in Woodbridge.
Around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, Prince William County Police responded to the 2900 block of Dale Boulevard in Woodbridge for a hit and run, said Jonathan Perok, spokesman for the Prince William County Police Department.
The 22-year-old male victim from Dumfries reported to police that while visiting a family member on Woodmark Drive, he got into a verbal altercation with a female. The incident escalated physically, Perok said.
Following the encounter, the victim and a friend left the residence in the friend’s vehicle. The female followed, police said.
Perok said the woman “allegedly rammed the vehicle multiple times while both were traveling on I-95.”
The friend of the victim was driving at the time of the incident and exited the interstate near the Ashdale Plaza area, he said. Once there, Perok said the woman struck the vehicle again before exiting her vehicle and spray painting the trunk area of the other car.
The woman left the area before police arrived, but returned to the scene a short time later, he said.
Allysha Brenise Edwards, 21, of St. George’s Drive in Stafford is charged with two counts of malicious wounding and destruction of property. She is being held without bond.
No injuries were reported and police estimate damages to the other car at about $1,000.
