A woman was arrested for ramming into another vehicle at a traffic stop in Jupiter.
Police say the incident, which happened at the intersection of West Indiantown Road and South Central Boulevard, was totally avoidable. The antagonist of the crash was a 61 year old woman who witnesses say was visibly angry when the car in front of her refused to move at a traffic stop.
A woman who witnessed the crash said that the driver was so enraged that she swore and raised her hands in the air in an angry fit. Police say she started creeping forward in her car in an attempt at intimidating the driver ahead of her and proceeded to ram into the vehicle when she did not get the response she was expecting.
According to the Jupiter Police, a plain clothes Palm Beach Gardens police officer who was close to the intersection witnessed the accident and approached the vehicle of the enraged woman. The driver allegedly offered the officer a $20 bill when she was approached by the officer.
The passengers in the other vehicle showed no visible signs of injuries apart from some bodily pain due to whiplash.
The angry woman was arrested by the Jupiter police. According to Police reports, her blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit.
Drivers are advised to be tolerant while driving to avoid altercations which could lead to dangerous scenarios.
