DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A Des Moines woman hospitalized after being hit by a car in her driveway said she was targeted by a man angry over her request for him to help wash dishes.
The Des Moines Register reports that the woman told investigating officers she was run over after she reminded the man to wash the dishes.
A witness told police he saw the man leave the house and the victim followed after him, asking why he was upset. The witness said the man got in his car and accelerated toward the woman, hitting her and causing her to fly into the air.
The witness said the man did not stop to check on the well-being of the woman.
An arrest warrant has been issued for the man.
