Woman and Maserati struck intentionally in PA

Hit-and-run leads to brief pursuit through Professorville neighborhood

In a hit-and-run gone wrong, a Sunnyvale woman reversed her vehicle into an Atherton woman – and her Maserati – in Professorville Wednesday night.

The victim, 44 or 45 years old, was hit by the vehicle on her hip and wrist, but was not injured, Acting Lt. Sandra Brown said Friday.

Nadine Milesi, 43, of Sunnyvale was arrested and charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon and hit and run.

The incident began shortly before 10 p.m. in front of the post office on Hamilton Avenue, when Milesi, driving a Dodge Caravan, rear-ended the black 2008 Maserati headed east.

Milesi then drove off, turning right onto Waverley Street.

The Atherton woman pursued her, Brown said.

When Milesi stopped at Addison Avenue, the Maserati's driver exited the vehicle and attempted to approach on foot, Brown said.

Milesi than reversed, striking the Maserati, pulled forward and reversed again, this time hitting the driver.

Again, Milesi attempted to flee.

The Atherton woman phoned police, who arrived and found Milesi not far away, Brown said.

She surrendered and was arrested.

The victim was able to drive the Maserati away, Brown said.

I'm not sure which was the more unbelievable act -- intentionally driving backwards to ram the Maserati -- or getting out of the car to confront the deranged driver?

These were so-called "adults"??
