Shamanique R. Bryant is being charged in a bizarre hit and run that occurred early Saturday morning near the intersection of Euclid Avenue and Coltman Road.

Bryant was driving a 2001 Oldsmobile Alero when she rear-ended another car, Cleveland.com reports. Ok, that's pretty reckless, but nothing too out of the ordinary.

But, Bryant was driving fast enough that the impact threw the woman sitting in the passenger seat, Mattie J. Quellen Stubbs, out of the car. 

Did Bryant stop and get out of the car to see if Stubbs was ok? No. Did she instead flee the scene? Yes. 

While the actions mentioned above point to some sort of diminished capacity for reasoning and general good decision making, Bryant did later stop to perform CPR on a man in the backseat of the car. By the way, the man had been shot earlier in the night. 

Presumably the man who had been shot showed some sign of improvement, because Bryant returned to the scene of the accident, where she then proceeded to run over Stubbs. 

So, to recap, Bryant is speeding, crashes into another car, causing her passenger to be thrown out of her car, while a man is likely bleeding profusely from a gunshot wound in the backseat.  Bryant flees sans Stubbs, comes back and runs over Stubbs, who died from her injuries. 

Bryant is being charged with aggravated vehicular homicide, and leaving the scene of an accident. According to Fox 8, OVI charges may also be added.
