Woman arrested following road rage wreck

ROBINSON, TX (KXXV) - A 36-year-old Waco woman was arrested after being involved in a road rage incident that ended up in a crash on Highway 77 Tuesday afternoon.

Shamica Shonte Evans faces a charge of deadly conduct and is being held in the McLennan County Jail for the incident.

Robinson police say a road rage incident went on for two mile stretch of Highway 77, about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday. Witnesses told police they saw it start when the driver of a gold minivan was cut off when the driver of a small car refused to yield to her.

The two continued southbound on 77, with witnesses saying the two exchanged gestures. Then, at a traffic light, the driver got out of her van, and was walking toward the other car when the light changed.

Police say the two continued south on 77, with both refusing to yield to the other, until they reached the Loop 340 interchange. That is when police say the driver of the minivan rammed the other vehicle.

The other vehicle received damage to the front side of the car and managed to stop, but the minivan spun out and hit a road sign support and ended up in the ditch with heavy damage.
