Domestic dispute becomes road rage, ends with a car flipped over
Driver pulled from this car in downtown Louisburg parking lot

LOUISBURG -- First responders rescued a woman from an overturned vehicle. They then charged her with assault with a deadly weapon -- the result of a domestic dispute that spiraled into a road rage incident.

Louisburg police officers responded to the parking lot behind Town Hall just after 5 p.m. on Friday, finding Sarah Blake trapped inside the overturned sport utility vehicle she was driving.

Upon further investigation, said Louisburg Police Chief Jason Abbott, authorities learned that Blake and Aaron Davis got into an argument that began at Franklin Court Apartments, where the two live together.

She was ramming his Chevy sedan and he left in an effort to avoid her. Blake followed Davis as he pulled into the Strickland Funeral Home parking lot to avoid her, investigators said.

Davis drove around the back of the parking lot and made the turn to get onto Church Street, authorities said.

Blake missed that turn, Abbott said, and the vehicle ran through a retaining wall and overturned -- coming to rest on its top in the adjacent Town Hall lot.

First responders removed Blake from the vehicle and she was transported to WakeMed where she was treated for non life-threatening injuries.

Blake, 22, was charged with assault with a deadly weapon, driving while impaired, careless and reckless driving, and driving with a revoked license.

The State Highway Patrol assisted with the investigation.

Blake is next slated to appear in court on these charges on Aug. 18. She has a July 24 court date on apparently unrelated traffic citations.

Davis was not charged with any crime.
