A 26-year-old Miami County woman is accused of intentionally ramming a GMC Acadia driven by her child’s father early Sunday while she had four young children in her SUV.

Taylor Marie Hines was arraigned Monday in Dayton Municipal Court for felonious assault, and misdemeanor charges including three counts of endangering children, criminal damage and domestic violence.

A doorbell camera alerted a 43-year-old man to a video early Sunday that showed Hines driving a Dodge Journey and strike his unoccupied Chevrolet Express parked in his driveway while he was at the B&B Lounge and Grill, 2914 Salem Ave. in Dayton.

The man decided to leave the lounge when Hines at 2:30 a.m. showed up. She allegedly punched her child’s father — who has a temporary protection order against Hines — three times. She then got back inside the SUV, where her three children, ages 8, 5 and 4, and 4-year-old niece were inside, and struck the man’s SUV after he got inside, according to an affidavit.

“Hines intentionally rammed the Dodge into the GMC while the Dodge was occupied by herself and the four children and while the GMC was occupied,” the document stated.

Hines backed up her SUV and rammed the GMC a second time before her wheels became stuck, allowing the man to flee. Hines tried to follow him but was involved in a crash at 2:41 a.m. Parkhill Drive at Salem Avenue, according to a Dayton Police Department crash report.

A 27-year-old Columbus woman driving a Chevrolet Impala was traveling north in the right lane on Parkhill Drive when at Salem Avenue attempted to make a left turn, and in doing so collided with Hines who was traveling north on Parkhill Drive. There were no injuries in the crash, the report stated.

Hines, who also is accused of violating a temporary protection order, later was arrested and booked just after 5 a.m. into the Montgomery County Jail, where she is held on a $50,000 bond. A preliminary hearing is set for Nov. 24.
