Police say a man intentionally crashed a car -- that he wasn't driving -- in an effort to hurt or kill others in the vehicle.

According to authorities, 25-year-old Shawn Monahan grabbed the steering wheel of a Chevy HHR, while someone else was driving.

He told the others they were going to die and then grabbed the wheel, turning the car off the road and steering it into a ditch, according to officials.

Monahan was arrested on two counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and one count of battery with strangulation and taken to the Volusia County Jail.
