Facebook feud leads to deliberate car crash, death

You know when someone keeps commenting on your Facebook page and it drives you nuts and you totally want to kill them?

Apparently, one such exchange became so contentious that a woman who spotted a “Facebook rival” decided, despite the fact that she was in the car with her three-year-old daughter, that deliberately running into her frenemy’s car, killing her, was an appropriate and proportionate response.

According to Detroit News, the unnamed 23-year-old perpetrator spotted 21-year-old Alesha Abernathy driving with friend Danielle Booth, 20, in the passenger seat. (Abernathy had filed a harassment report with police earlier in the week due to the woman’s alleged Facebook harassment.)

Detroit News describes the bizarre incident and collision:

According to authorities, the woman repeatedly rammed Abernathy’s car, causing her to lose control of the vehicle. The Abernathy car struck a dump truck, which flipped onto its side. The truck driver was unhurt.

Court documents indicate that the woman, who was not injured, is expected to be charged with “second-degree murder, assault with intent to murder and child abuse.”
