A mother who nearly killed her ex-boyfriend after chasing him down in a ute and ploughing into other cars will spend two years behind bars.
Kristianne Bycroft, 29, had an argument with her 55-year-old ex-partner in the carpark of a Newcastle KFC in November 2020 before chasing him down and ramming his car.
As he attempted to escape, Ms Bycroft continued to pursue him, causing several collisions with cars on the busy road.
She was incensed and pushed ‘over the edge’ because he owed her $300.

The incident occurred on November 13 of last year with the footage taken by witnesses going viral around the world.
Ms Bycroft can be seen driving directly at her ex’s yellow Barina as a man jumps out of the way just before she hits him.
She’s then confronted by a man before an ambulance driving by also stops to help intervene.
Ms Bycroft then flees the scene, as several tradies stand around her car trying to get her to stop.
She then wedges her ute through traffic, scraping through multiple vehicles before running a red light.
She cleans up another car as she’s attempting to run, before continuing to drive off with severe damage to her vehicle.

She faced Newcastle Local Court on Saturday where she was sentenced to two years and three months in prison.
The court heard that Ms Bycroft’s three-minute road rampage endangered several lives.
Four cars were heavily damaged during the outburst, while her partner was treated with minor injuries.
Her lawyers say the incident was the result of years of abuse in a toxic relationship but magistrate Janine Lacy instead described the attack as ‘dangerous and despicable’.
She admits she feels ‘utter shame’ and ‘regret’.
With time already served Ms Bycroft could be released as early as March next year.
