“Upon preliminary investigation, it was found that several females were meeting to discuss an issue at an agreed upon meeting place when Ms. Baker struck the two vehicles and the open door of a third vehicle when attempting to drive around them,” Klink wrote in an email. “She then fled the scene.”

Klink said she did not know whether Baker and the victims were known to each other.
