MANATEE — A woman remains hospitalized after she was run over by a vehicle at about 9 p.m. Sunday in the 500 block of State Road 64.
It was first reported she was hit by a bus, but according to a Manatee County Sheriff’s Office report, the 40-year-old woman said the car that struck her was driven by her husband.
“The two apparently were in separate cars and pulled over alongside the road to argue,” said David Bristow, spokesman for the sheriff’s office. “The husband then got into his car and hit her before driving off.”
A sheriff’s deputy was patrolling the area when he noticed several vehicles pulled off on the side of the road.
When he stopped to investigate, he found the woman had been struck by a vehicle.
The woman, who has a Sarasota address on her driver’s license, remains in critical condition, according to reports.
The incident is under investigation as an aggravated domestic battery, but there were no arrests as of Monday night.
