Alandra Ramirez, 21, arrested
BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Melbourne Police arrested a 21-year-old woman on Friday after she reportedly struck a motorcyclist in a road-rage incident and drove away in the early morning hours on Thursday, along S. Babcock St.
The woman has been identified as Alandra Ramirez, 21, from Melbourne.
Police say the motorcyclist was intentionally hit by Ramirez when the two began the initial their exchange in West Melbourne and continued through Melbourne.
Authorities say the exchange continued throughout the city of Melbourne when Ramirez eventually sped up and intentionally struck the motorcyclist with her Brown Kia vehicle.
Police say the impact caused the front-bumper on the Kia to become wedged on the back tire of the bike and ejected the motorcyclist off the bike.
Ramirez then drove away after hitting the man.
The victim reportedly suffered injuries to his face and midsection, but declined treatment at the scene and would take himself to the hospital a little later.
In a bizarre twist, while the man was at the hospital receiving treatment, he noticed the woman who hit him at the hospital was also receiving treatment, say police.
Ramirez was reportedly receiving treatment for unrelated incident to the crash, according to Melbourne Police.
Ramirez has been charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and is currently being held at the Brevard County Jail on a $15,000 bond.
