Man hit by car after argument

WARREN – A woman was arrested about 10 minutes after a man was run over by a car Friday evening in Packard Park. The pair had been arguing moments earlier, and the man had jumped on the hood of the car in an attempt to stop her from leaving, according to reports.

A witness called police about 7:35 p.m. to report that a red-haired woman in a silver Dodge Neon just ran over a man’s head. The witness said the man was conscious and talking, and that the car took off out of the park.

Shortly after, April Walker, 53, was booked into the Trumbull County Jail on one felony count of aggravated vehicular assault, a jail official said. Warren police would not confirm Friday night whether Walker was arrested in the Packard Park case, or if she was being held in another case.

According to reports, a pedestrian and a motorist were arguing in Packard Park. The man told officers that as the woman was trying to leave, he stood in front of her car to stop her. She gunned the engine, he backed off and then stepped in front of her again.

This time after she gunned the engine, he jumped on the hood. The driver took off, he fell off the car and she ran over him on the way out, police said.

The man was described as having “serious visible injuries” over his entire body. He was taken by ambulance to Trumbull Memorial Hospital. His name and condition were not released Friday night.
