A woman accused of trying to hit York City Police officers with her car in January was arrested Wednesday by the U.S. Marshals Service.

Kimberly Ann Edwards, 28, with past addresses in York and Hanover, was caught around 1 p.m. at a hotel on the Harrisburg Pike in Carlisle, according to a marshals service news release Thursday.

Members of the fugitive task force arrested Edwards without incident near the hotel, the release states. She was turned over to the York County Sheriff’s Office's Central Booking Unit for processing and arraignment.

Edwards has been wanted since a Jan. 25 traffic stop by York City Police. Around 3 p.m., York City officers stopped a vehicle near Farquhar Park. As officers approached, Edwards, who was behind the wheel, allegedly put the car in reverse and drove toward the officers, nearly striking them, before fleeing. She allegedly struck another vehicle near the intersection of Roosevelt and Pennsylvania avenues during her escape.  

The officers later learned that Edwards was wanted for a parole violation and several prior traffic violations. She is charged with aggravated assault, flight to avoid apprehension and lesser offenses in this case. The marshals' fugitive task force was asked to find her.
