An 18-year-old is accused of angrily driving her Chevrolet Camaro into the twin sister of her former friend, causing injuries.

Sydney Fornett, 18, had been friends with 29-year-old Jasmin Johnson's fraternal twin, but the two former friends had been arguing, according to Jasmin Johnson and an incident report from the Moss Point Police Department.

Johnson said her sister and Fornett had ended their friendship, but did have an ongoing dispute.

"We are not identical," Johnson said. "She knew it was me. She bragged about hitting me."

What the dispute was about is unclear.

Johnson said she was standing in her grandparents' driveway with her mother when she was struck.

A witness told police he saw the Camaro driving down Adams Street when it stopped, backed up in a driveway on Julia Street and turned around.

The car ran off the road and pulled into the driveway of a home in the 4400 block of Adams, where it struck Johnson, a witness told police.

Johnson's mother gave police the same account. Her twin corroborated the ongoing dispute, the report said.

Police were called to the scene at 4:56 p.m. April 22.

Singing River Hospital staff told police the woman had a fractured and dislocated left shoulder, scrapes on her right cheek and bruises on her right knee, according to the report.

Johnson signed a complaint against Fornett, who was arrested on a charge of aggravated assault on Monday.

A judge set Fornett's bond at $20,000 on Tuesday. Fornett remained in custody Wednesday morning.
