INDIANAPOLIS - A woman was arrested in connection to a hit-and-run incident that sent a tire crashing through a woman’s windshield on Interstate 465.
Jennifer Nichole Joines was arrested Wednesday evening on a charge of failure to stop and remain at the scene of an accident resulting in injury, officials with Indiana State Police said.
Cathi Gould was driving north on I-465 near Rockville Road on Tuesday evening when a tire from a southbound car flew off, went over the concrete barrier and crashed right in the middle of her windshield.
Joines told police she left the scene because she was driving on a suspended license.
Gould walked away OK with only a few scrapes and bruises.
"I think if I hadn't been in the fast lane it could have hit right smack in the driver's side. That probably would have killed me," Gould said.
