Police caught up to the car a short time later and took the driver, 32-year-old Jessica Beauvais, of Long Island, into custody, authorities said.
When asked whether it was possible that the woman didn't realize she had hit the officer, Shea said the damage to her vehicle was so extensive that "there's no way to not know that you struck an individual."
