Some stories are so tragic and bizarre we just don't know what to think. Last night a Cleveland woman was stabbed in the neck and then went on to hit a 2-year-old with her car. Both died. My first question was why would you drive a car after getting stabbed in the neck?!? It sounds like an accident. But then I learned more about this horrific incident.
It's hard to tell as details on this story come out, but it sounds like these deaths were the result of a fight between two women. According to witnesses, around 9:00 p.m., Kimberly Black and Sharice Swain were arguing inside a parked car in Kimberly's driveway. What happened next is confusing, but here goes.
Both children were rushed to the hospital. A witness who picked up the 2-year-old girl says she believes the girl died in her arms (the girl's death has been confirmed). The younger child is being treated for non-life threatening injuries.
What the hell?!?
Did Sharice hit the children on purpose or did she lose control of the car after suffering those injuries? What could they have possibly been arguing about that would lead Kimberly to violently attack Sharice? And given Kimberly's strange behavior -- not just the attack but also removing her clothes -- were either or both of these women under the influence of drugs or alcohol?
Who knows -- it's just so awful. I feel especially bad for the 1-year-old child. It doesn't look like Kimberly will be around to raise that child.
What do you think led to this violent chain of events?
