WILMINGTON, Del. – A driver intentionally kicked a pregnant woman in the stomach Saturday afternoon during a fight at the Chick-fil-A drive-thru in Bear, State Police said.
Jada Blake, 19, of Newark, was in the drive-thru lane at the Chick-fil-A when the driver of another vehicle attempted to pull in front of her, police said. The line at the restaurant frequently backs up onto the street, blocking traffic at the nearby shopping center.
Blake abruptly accelerated, blocking the vehicle from moving forward, then got out to confront the other driver, a 21-year-old pregnant woman, police said.
