The accused will be brought to the 50th District Court in Pontiac today. Her 3-year-old daughter was by her side when the incident took place, according to the police.

Pontiac police have pointed out that a dispute on Facebook initiated the accident in Woodward Avenue on Wednesday afternoon, in which the accused began chasing and rammed into a Ford Taurus carrying 21-year-old Alesha Abernathy and 20-year-old Danielle Booth.

During the chase, Abernathy ignored a red light at the intersection of Woodward and Rapid Street at around 2:30 p.m on Wednesday, and crashed into a dump truck. The crash resulted in Alesha being killed and Booth being badly wounded.

The Police said that Booth had lodged a complaint with them that she was being blackmailed and tortured by the suspect after a dispute that broke out on Facebook.

The suspect started chasing the Ford Taurus on Wednesday when she realized it was being driven by Abernathy.

Abernathy tried to dodge the suspect’s vehicle, but the suspect rammed the Ford Taurus a number of times before it went and collided with a dump truck, causing the truck to tip over on its side.

The entire incident was seen by Pontiac Police Department Detective Paul McDougal who was driving an unmarked car. He went after her the suspect’s vehicle and handcuffed her on a residential street near the scene of the crime. The suspect and her daughter did not sustain any injuries during the chase. The child was handed over to a close member of the family

The dump truck driver, Dave Jackson who is also a resident of Pontiac has stated that he was eastbound on Rapid street and was trying to get into the parking area on east Woodward when the Taurus slammed into his truck and tossed it over.

“The light turned green and I come across the street — I was gonna buy me some fish for my dinner — and the next thing I know, a car come out of nowhere and hit me so hard it tipped my truck right over on its side,” Jackson narrated to the Oakland Press.
He anticipated that the vehicle was being driven at 70 or 80 mph when it hit his truck. He did not sustain any injuries.
