Police are looking for a man who hit a woman with his SUV and then took off, leaving her in the middle of the road.
Police say it was just after 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday when a woman driving a Honda Accord pulled out in front of a man driving an SUV that was either white or silver. Witnesses say the woman was upset because the man was going too fast. When she got out of her car and confronted the man at the driver’s side window of the SUV, he got out of his vehicle and the verbal argument escalated to a physical confrontation.
The woman ended up on the ground and the man got back in his SUV and took off, striking the woman.
“He was coming around the curb pretty fast, you know she pulled out about so far and he slid around and they got out,” said David Knight, a witness. “Next thing I know they were fist fighting, she was down on the ground.”
The woman was taken to Clark Regional Hospital with non life threatening injuries.
Police say you should never get out of your car to confront another driver because the situation could escalate.
The incident is still under investigation.
If you have any information on the incident or if you recognize the SUV, call the Winchester Police.
