COMING SUNDAY: A Warren man is recovering from multiple injuries, and a local woman is scheduled for a Monday appearance in Warren Municipal Court on a charge of aggravated vehicular assault in connection with a Friday night hit-and-run in Packard Park.
Officers say the victim, William Whitman, 51, of Warren, remained in Trumbull Memorial Hospital today, where he was being treated for multiple fractures.
Warren police arrested April Walker, 53, outside the park and driving a silver Dodge Neon that was linked to the episode inside the park.
A witness called police about 7:30 p.m. to state that a red-haired woman in a silver car just ran over a man's head.
Police said that Walker and Whitman had been arguing. Whitman told officers that as Walker 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. She gunned it, and he jumped onto the hood, police said.
The car took off, and he slid off the hood and was run over, police said.
The witness described the car a silver Dodge Neon four-door, and told police that Whitman was conscious and talking to her.
Police stopped Walker about 10 minutes later and put her under arrest at about 7:50 p.m.
According to police radio traffic, one officer asked if Whitman had serious visible injuries, and another officer answered, "He was run completely over. I don't think there's a part of his body that's not injured here.''
