Russian woman Mary Artemyeva was accused of attempted murder after she forced her ex-boyfriend’s car off the road.
The 26-year-old flew into a jealous rage when she saw her ex-boyfriend Chariton Anisimov, 28, on the road with his new girlfriend. Artemyeva revved her engine and rammed straight into Anisimov’s car in central Russia’s Volgograd Oblast.
Anisimov can be seen attempting to accelerate away in video footage filmed by a dashboard camera. However, Artemyeva relentlessly rams her ex-boyfriend’s car from the side and forces it up onto the central reservation. The force caused Anisimov’s car to crash and hit a huge billboard.
Both Anisimov and his girlfriend were taken to the hospital with concussions following the road rage incident. They are expected to make a full recovery, though they are being kept in for observation.
“We have arrested a young woman on suspicion of breaching traffic rules, intentional criminal damage and possibly attempted murder,” police spokesperson Arkady Ignatyev said.
Artemyeva’s license has since been revoked.
