JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A police report obtained Monday by News4Jax details what happened when police said a woman intentionally drove her car into a plasma donation center on the Westside on Saturday.

Several witnesses described a frightening scene at DCI Biologicals on Blanding Boulevard.

Twelve people were hurt, including the driver of the car, 35-year-old Pamela Miller (pictured below).

Police said Miller drove her car 40 feet into the building after she was told she could not donate. People inside told News4Jax that Miller had taken several pills while waiting.

One witness told police, "The suspect hit the building, put the car in reverse and then intentionally hit the building again."

Another witness said she heard the suspect say, "I will just kill all of you in the building," according to the report.

"I never seen nothing like that, a car actually run into a building, and your life is that close to being taken. That was scary," said one woman who saw the crash but didn't want to be identified.

Miller made her first appearance in court on Sunday. She is charged with aggravated battery, but the State Attorney's Office could add more charges.

DCI Biologicals is set to reopen Tuesday.
