Man Injured in Hit & Run Vehicular Assault in Queen Anne

A woman who ran over her husband and fled the scene last night in Queen Anne remains in the King County Jail today.

On December 7th at approximately 11:09 p.m. a married couple attended an office holiday party but decided to leave after they began arguing. At their car, which had been parked at a nearby parking lot in the 2000 block of 15th Avenue West, the argument became heated. The husband decided to exit the vehicle and walk away. He then noticed that his wife was maneuvering their black 2004 Mitsubishi Galant toward him so he sheltered behind a small tree at the edge of the parking lot. His wife drove over the tree, struck him with the car and ran over him. She then sped off down the road.

A state trooper happened to be in the area, saw the suspect (wife) driving recklessly and initiated a traffic stop. Seattle Police officers responded to the trooper’s location approximately two blocks away and placed the suspect under arrest.

Fire department medics responded to the scene to evaluate and treat the 34-year-old male victim. He was subsequently transported to Harborview Medical Center with facial, wrist, and leg injuries, all of which were considered non-life-threatening.

The 24-year-old female suspect was booked into the King County Jail for felony domestic violence assault.

Additional charges may be pending based on further follow up investigation.
