A 49-year-old woman was arrested and accused of trying to run over people in her vehicle.

At about 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, deputies from the Rosamond Substation were dispatched to the 2700 block of Elberta Street for a suspicious circumstance. 

Deputies spoke to several witnesses who said Ola Jones drove her vehicle into a fence that Lakisha Hamilton and a juvenile were standing next to.  

Both subjects had to move to avoid being stuck by the vehicle. Jones attempted to flee the scene and Jacarr Daniels tried to stop her, officials said.

While Daniels was holding on to the vehicle, Jones drove the vehicle into a tree ejecting him, officials said. Daniels sustained several injuries to his head and was transported to Antelope Valley Hospital.  

Jones was found under the influence of marijuana while operating the van.  


Jones was arrested and booked into the Kern County Central Receiving Facility for three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of child endangerment and one count of driving under the influence.  Jones bail is $97,500.
