A Virginia woman is in custody after police say she rammed her car into another vehicle outside the entrance of Walter Reed Hospital and a Naval officer fired a shot at her.

Police say an officer at the hospital shot at the woman's car after the crash Tuesday morning but did not strike her. The officer was injured, apparently when he used a baton to strike the woman's car.

Montgomery County Police spokesman Paul Starks identifies the arrested woman as Angela Akosua Kobbold from Manassas. Starks says she is being treated and charges are pending.

Stark says the woman's car had been spotted going more than 90 mph on Interstate 66 in Virginia.

The woman never got on the naval base in Bethesda, Maryland.
