Authorities published shocking footage of a Washington D.C. woman breaking a Greyhound bus window with a car jack before she attempted to run over the vehicle’s driver.

The turmoil took place when the woman, identified as 20-year-old Mariana Silver, was trying to illegally pass the bus on the block of Bladensburg Road Thursday, authorities told press outlet WTOP.

She sideswiped the vehicle next to her and got into a verbal altercation with the driver.

Confused by her behavior, the Greyhound bus driver shouted, “You’re a crazy driver, get off the road!” according to police.

That’s when she took the carjack from her trunk and became enraged, The New York Post reported.

Silver, dressed in leggings and a bralette, then destroys the rear-view mirror before going back to her car.

“Is she f–king kidding me? She’s getting arrested. That’s a crime,” a woman said in the background.

To prevent her from fleeing, the bus driver stood in front of the woman’s Audi A8 and called 9-1-1.

However, the effort didn’t stop the woman from crashing into the man three times before ultimately throwing him into the intersection after she hit the gas.

Silver was taken into custody and was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon.

The bus driver sustained minor injuries and was managed to complete his route, a spokesperson for Greyhound said.
