A 26-year-old Village of Clarkston woman allegedly ran over her boyfriend last night after he assaulted her, according to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office.

The Orion Township Fire Department arrived to a home on the 500 block of Mayer Ct. around 9 p.m. Wednesday after neighbors called about a disturbance.

When they arrived, they found a 28-year-old Orion Township man trapped under the woman’s Dodge Dart. They used a jack to pry the man free and rushed him to the hospital, where he remains in critical condition.

Investigators said the incident happened when the woman attempted to get away from her boyfriend after he assaulted her.  

The boyfriend allegedly jumped on the hood of the woman’s car, as she was backing up but then she struck a tree and he fell to the ground. The woman then drove forward, running over the man, according to investigators.

The woman immediately stopped once she realized what had happened. She too was transported to a local hospital and treated and released for injuries she sustained during the assault.
