Maryland woman arrested after chase

A Maryland woman was arrested after ramming another motorist on I-64 in Bath County, then leading police on a chase into Rowan County Tuesday morning, according to a news release from state police.

Also according to the release:

State police said a motorist told an officer who was pulled over on a traffic stop that he had been hit by a white Toyota RAV 4 that failed to stop.

The officer, who works with state police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement, caught up with the RAV and tried to stop it, but the driver continued on.

Near the 136 mile marker in Rowan County, the woman, Fung Shen, 47, of Derwood, Md., swerved and hit another vehicle.

State police then used "stop sticks" to deflate her tires near the 142 mile marker.

She was arrested and charged with first-degree wanton endangerment, two counts of leaving the scene of an accident, fleeing or evading police, reckless driving and not having insurance. She was taken to the Rowan County Detention Center.
