WILMINGTON, N.C. - A woman has been identified after she was caught on video running over her ex-boyfriend and his new girlfriend.

However, it wasn't the video that helped track her down, it was the selfie she posted afterwards showing herself and the damage to her car.

Courtnay Danielle Lawrence is facing charges of assault with a deadly weapon and hit-and-run after the incident last week, WWAY reports.

Christina Benson was walking down the street with Lawrence's ex when she heard a loud horn.

"I mean, I put my hands up just in time," said Benson. "Had I hit that concrete without having them there, I don't know that i would be. I don't know that I would be here."

Benson says Lawrence left the scene and then asked where her ex-boyfriend had gone.

After the incident, Lawrence posted the selfie that helped identify her as the primary suspect.
