Jefferson County Sheriff’s officers Monday were still investigating an incident from Saturday in which a 49-year-old Oskaloosa man was run over with a vehicle driven by a 24-year-old woman early Saturday morning in the 1100 block of Union Street in Oskaloosa.
Capt. Randy Carreno said about 4 a.m. Saturday officers believe the woman backed out the vehicle and ran over the man as she was trying to drive her boyfriend away from a physical altercation involving three of her brothers. Investigators believe the woman was not aware she had struck the man and pulled forward, running over him again.
The 49-year-old man was trying to intervene in the disturbance, and he was injured and taken to a Topeka-area hospital, Carreno said. A Stormont-Vail Regional Health Center spokeswoman said Monday evening the man was treated and released.
Carreno said the woman had left the scene and was later arrested on a DUI charge, but officers on Monday were still trying to determine circumstances surrounding the incident.
