Police: Fleeing woman ran herself over

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Sept. 15 (UPI) -- A 63-year-old woman attempting to flee from police officers in Baker County, Fla., accidentally ran herself over with her own van, police allege.

Baker County Sheriff Joey Dobson said when Mary B. Davis allegedly attempted to leave the scene of a domestic dispute call in her van, she crashed into a riding lawnmower and fell from her vehicle, the (Jacksonville) Florida Times-Union said Monday.

After falling out of her moving car Sunday afternoon, Davis was run over by the vehicle and sustained non-life-threatening injuries, Dobson said.

Dobson alleged the accident happened a moment after Davis nearly struck a deputy with her vehicle as the officer was standing by the vehicle's open driver's door. The deputy was able to jump away from the moving vehicle and avoid injury, the sheriff said.

The Baker County official told the Times-Union the incident occurred after Davis allegedly threatened individuals at the scene after becoming enraged that her son was being arrested as part of the domestic dispute call.
