A woman who authorities said purposely struck and seriously injured another woman with a car following a dispute at a southern New Jersey apartment complex last year has been captured.

Hannah faces numerous counts, including attempted homicide and aggravated assault, that stem from an April 23, 2019 incident at the Oakview Apartments in Millville. Authorities have said she fought with a woman there that night and struck her over the head with a bottle, then later encountered the woman’s 24-year-old cousin in the complex’s parking lot.

Hannah struck the cousin with a car, which pushed the victim into a parked car, pinning her between both vehicles, authorities have said. The cousin suffered a crushed pelvis and had to have a portion of her left leg amputated.

Hannah drove off and later abandoned the car, removing the license plate and front bumper, authorities have said.
