Professional surfer Jill Hansen has been arrested and charged with attempted murder after running over a 73-year-old woman in her car. Hansen apparently ran the woman over and was going back for a second go before she was stopped by a passer-by, in what the police are rather understatedly calling a “road rage incident.”

Hansen, 30, allegedly followed 73-year-old Elizabeth Conklin back to her condo in Waikiki, Hawaii, before hitting Conklin as she exited her car. Hansen then reversed the car in an apparent attempt to hit her victim a second time, before a witness, maintenance man Christopher Koury, intervened, breaking Hansen’s rear window with a crowbar.

“He saw her in her car getting ready to hit me again. He totally saved my life,” Conklin said.

Conklin says she doesn’t remember any of the incident at all, which is probably a good thing, to be honest. Getting run over by an angry pro surfer is unlikely to be anyone’s fondest memory. “I parked in my normal parking place, and I got out and all of a sudden I woke up in an ambulance,” she said.

It’s not really clear why on earth Hansen had it in for Conklin, and further details haven’t made things any more obvious. Koury says that he heard Hansen shout out “My father made me do this, he’s a high-powered attorney,” as she fled the scene, which has to be one of the stranger reasons to run over a pensioner out there.

Conklin herself reckons that her BMW was the real target of the attack. “She saw my car, it was the car she wanted, she followed me (and) was going to kill me to get the car,” she told reporters. That’s perhaps supported by the fact that on the same day as the attack, Hansen posted a picture of the same model BMW as Conklin drove on Facebook.

Just in case this story wasn’t strange enough already, Radar report that Hansen was arrested in January this year after her father (that high-powered attorney, presumably) reported her for violating an order of protection he had against her. “She blocked off traffic on my street and called HPD to report that my wife, my son and I had all been murdered,” her father claimed in a police report at the time.

It seems fair to say that Hansen probably has a few mental health problems, and hopefully she gets the help that she needs. In the meantime, lock up your pensioners and your BMWs, just in case.
