A North Platte woman has been jailed on a felony charge after she allegedly tried to run a North Platte High School Student (NPHS) down with her car.

According to Police, Officers responded to the parking lot at NPHS at about 1:05 p.m Wednesday.  They met with several individuals who reported that Kirsten Collins nearly struck a student with her car.

The victim told Police that Collins is an acquaintance of hers, and they do not get along.

The victim stated that she had been walking in the parking lot when she saw Collins’ car in the area.  Collins allegedly stopped her vehicle, backed up and drove through the parking lot towards the victim at a high rate of speed.  The victim told Officers she had to jump out of the way to avoid being struck. Witnesses corroborated the story.

After viewing surveillance video from the school, Officers determined there was probable cause to arrest Kirsten and charge her with Attempted 2nd Degree Assault, or assault with a weapon.

Police say Collins is not a student at NPHS.

      Shut up sounds like maybe you need to return to school. When you are always on the post making comments you should learn to be just a tab bit more literate. Not that I condone her actions because I most certainly do not, Lincoln county should and hopefully will prosecute this young lady as her actions are completely unacceptable. Had she actually hit and killed this student she would have been charged with vehicular homicide, aside from whatever differences theses young ladies may have using a vehicle as a weapon is never a good choice.

        So he spelled one word wrong. I do typo’s all the time. Maybe he is typing his comment on a phone. I’ve decided phones must not have space bars, nor puncuation. Drives me NUTS!

        Hey, Wow, I count numerous grammatical errors in YOUR post. Before you decide to check someone for allegedly being illiterate, you need to check yourself. Say it with me: SPELLCHECK IS MY FRIEND. Invest in a dictionary. “Hooked On Phonics” definitely didn’t work for you, did it?

    Maybe some people need to figure out that the victim was lying and she should be charged for falsifying a report.
