W. Babylon Woman Arrested After Hempstead Tear

Local resident allegedly rammed another person's car several times before flipping her own vehicle.

A West Babylon woman was arrested after she allegedly took her car on a ramming rampage throughout Hempstead Village on Saturday evening, police said.

Nassau County Police told Newsday that Morena Mctaw, 33, of West Babylon, intentionally rammed a man sitting outside of his Johnson Place residence in a 2013 Toyota with her 2000 GMC truck.

The victim attempted to flee from the crash, but police said Mctaw continued to follow and ram the victim's car. As the victim attempted to make a turn on Botsford Street, police said Mctaw rammed the vehicle one final time, the impact causing her vehicle to flip over and crash into a building on the corner of Botsford and Franklin Avenue.

The force of the crash knocked down a brick wall and ejected Mctaw from the vehicle.

Mctaw was taken to Nassau University Medical Center for treatment on her face and head.

She was arrested by Hempstead Village police and charged with first-degree assault, first-degree reckless endangerment and second-degree criminal mischief. Police said she would be arraigned at a later date.
