SAN DIEGO, Calif.  —  A woman has been charged with murder in a road rage incident that ended with her running over and killing a motorcyclist. 

According to a Reuters report, Darla Renee Jackson, 25, ran her Nissan Altima into the back of a red Ducati last Thursday and ran over the driver as he laid on the ground.

The driver, 39-year-old Zach Boub, was pronounced dead at the scene. Boub was a chief petty officer in the Navy and had served more than 20 years, a friend told ABC News10.

The CHP said that the incident started  when the drivers got into some sort of dispute. Jackson’s mother alleges it was all an accident.

Jackson’s mother told News10 that Boub kicked her daughter’s car and that she was only following him in order to get his license number.

“I told her, ‘Don’t worry, it’ll be okay, it was an accident’,” her mother said. “‘He was the one acting crazy and driving erratically.'”

The Department of Motor Vehicles records show that Jackson’s license was just reinstated after a two-year suspension for “lack of knowledge or skill.”

Jackson is currently being held without bail. An arraignment is scheduled for Tuesday, according to NBC 7 San Diego.
