A postal worker reportedly hit two colleagues with her car as a result of a dispute over the parking lot of a New Jersey shipping facility.
Police said they had been called Sunday morning at a United States Postal Service shipping facility in Kearny and had found two women aged 25 and 26 injured.
The two women told police officers that their colleague, Lashanda Johnson, had beaten them with his car in front of Dominick V. Daniels' processing and distribution center before going away, the Kearny police said.
One woman told the police that she had been knocked over by the car and the other said that she had been hit and hit on the ground.
The women, who were not identified, were hospitalized for unspecified wounds. One of them has since been released, police said. The authorities did not specify the end of the discussion.
Johnson, 27, was arrested Sunday afternoon charged with aggravated assault. She had used her car as a weapon, leaving an accident and several traffic violations on the scene.
"The postal service takes the safety of its employees seriously," said a spokesman for the USPS in a statement. "Given the pending criminal charges, we are not discussing staff actions."
