As Woody turned to drive up the road, a neighbor who witnessed the incident from his front yard yelled at Woody to stop because the girlfriend was still lying in the road, police said.

Woody then ran over the girlfriend with her front tires, stopped the vehicle, and ran her over again with the back tires before driving away, according to authorities.

Court documents did not indicate the victim's condition following the incident.

When Woody later pulled into a parking lot, officers approached her car and found her in the driver’s seat with a 5-year-old child in the back seat, according to court records.
