Comments () A Text Size

A 52-year-old woman remains in stable condition at an area hospital with injuries including a broken arm sustained when she was run over by a car multiple times Monday afternoon, officials said.

When police officers responded to a report of an aggravated assault in the 2600 block of North Elm Street at about 1 p.m. Monday, they found the injured woman, but the car that was allegedly driven over her was not at the scene, according to a police report.

Police said the man driving the car allegedly backed up and knocked the victim to the ground, and then ran over her with his left front tire. The man then pulled forward, allegedly running over the victim again, police said.

Reports show the man allegedly ran over her a third time, before speeding away from the scene.

Reports show the suspect allegedly struck another vehicle near the intersection of North Elm Street and West Sherman Drive during the getaway.

The woman was transported in stable condition to Denton Regional Medical Center, according to the Denton Fire Department.

Police are still searching for the driver of the car.
