Woman Blames God After Running Over Motorcyclist With Her Car

25-year-old Prionda Hill took the phrase "God is my co-pilot" a bit too seriously earlier this month in Fort Wayne, IN. According to news reports, she was driving in town when "God told her he would take it from here." So she let go of the steering wheel and nearly killed a motorcyclist:
Lying helplessly in the street and watching the car that just knocked him off his motorcycle bearing down on him, Anthony Oliveri was resigned to his fate. “When I looked at that bumper and looked at that tire, I told myself, today is the day you die,” he said Thursday of the July 11 crash. He closed his eyes and the car ran over his midsection, breaking all the ribs on his left side, cutting his spleen, bruising a kidney and leaving him with road rash and severe injuries to the muscles in his left arm and leg.
Oliveri's mother later reported that his back looked like "raw meat" because of the accident.

Hill's car also hit a pickup twice and eventually crashed into a traffic island between two fast food restaurants several blocks from the accident. She later told the police that she had a prescription of Vicodin, but it was unclear whether she was taking the pills or not.

Hill was arrested and charged with failure to stop after an accident and criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon.
