Freak Accident Critically Injures Woman
In a bizarre event which occurred during the early evening of Thursday, January 9th, a 49-year-old woman living in the Pecan Grove subdivision in Fort Bend County went to borrow $10 from an adult male neighbor who is a friend of hers. He refused and some sort of argument ensued. The man got into his SUV and, as he started to drive away from his house, the woman jumped onto the vehicle’s hood and held on. The man sped up and as he turned a corner, the woman was thrown off the hood and onto the pavement and severely injured. According to Fort Bend County Sheriff’s deputies on the scene, the man was intoxicated at the time. He was arrested a short time later. At this time, the man is charged with DWI and felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. It is presently unclear if the victim will survive her injuries. Investigation continues.
