Countryman was able to get away and ran to a neighbor's house for help. As she was escaping, police said Flores took off in her Cadillac sedan.

Countryman was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. Police said today that she is in stable condition.

Flores is charged with attempted 1st degree murder.
