Hawaiian surfer-model Jill Hansen was arrested and charged with attempted murder Wednesday, May 14, after allegedly attempting to intentionally hit a 73-year-old woman with her car.

Hansen, 30, was arrested after fleeing the scene of the altercation.

In what police are calling a road-rage incident, Hansen apparently followed Elizabeth Conklin to her condo where witnesses say Hansen hit Conklin with her car. And once wasn't enough for the sexy model because witnesses say Hansen then reversed to attempt to hit Conklin a second time.

The senior citizen told ABC News she has no memory of the incident.

“I parked in my normal parking place, and I got out and all of a sudden I woke up in an ambulance,” Conklin said.

A witness to the incident broke Hansen’s rear window when it looked like the surfer model was about to ram into Conklin a second time.

“He saw her in her car getting ready to hit me again. He totally saved my life,” Conklin said.

Conklin was transported to the hospital with cuts and bruises on her body.

Hansen is surfer and model with her own line of wetsuits. She made the following Facebook post the day of her arrest:

Conklin told ABC News she believes that Hansen's motive in the attack was to steal her own car.

Hansen is being held on $1 million bail.

Hansen appeared in a TedXFullerton TED Talks event in 2010.
