Police: Woman chases ex-boyfriend, repeatedly crashes into his car

Madison police said they are searching for a 29-year-old woman who repeatedly crashed her sport utility vehicle into a car driven by her ex-boyfriend in a downtown Madison parking ramp and then ran from the scene.

A 27-year-old Madison man said he was driving downtown when his ex-girlfriend spotted him about 11:30 p.m. Thursday.

He said the ex-girlfriend pulled her SUV alongside his car, and then pulled in front of him at stop sign. Not sure what she was up to, the man decided to put his car in reverse and back up the entrance ramp into the Dane County Parking Ramp at 113 S. Henry St., according to a Madison Police Department incident report.

Police said the ex drove up after him. Police said the man was trying to keep some distance, but he was in reverse and she was in drive, accelerating. The SUV smashed into the car, police said.

Police said the victim could tell that his ex wasn’t done, and he continued to back up following the crash.

The woman hit the gas again, causing a second collision, police said. The woman then pushed her former boyfriend’s car 15 yards, according to the police report.

Police said the woman next drove past the man, yelled something about a phone and then reversed her SUV into his back bumper.

The woman left her damaged vehicle in the parking ramp and fled, police said.

When police arrived they found the victim’s car leaking coolant. He estimated the damage at about $1,500.

Police said the woman is expected to be arrested for second-degree recklessly endangering safety when located.

Her former boyfriend told police he wasn’t sure what triggered the violence. He claimed to know nothing about a phone or having her property, according to the police report.

He described their past four-month relationship as “casual” and told an officer the parking ramp confrontation left him scared and disturbed, police said.
