A 61-year-old Shady Side man suffered life-threatening injuries Wednesday night after his estranged wife used her truck to pin him between the vehicle and another car, according to Anne Arundel County police and fire officials.
Police charged Patina Lynn Morehead, 39, of the 4900 block of Filbert Street in Shady Side, with attempted second-degree murder and first-degree assault, according to a police press release.
County police and firefighters responded to the 1200 block of Hawthorne Street in Shady side at about 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday for a report of an assault. Upon arrival, officers found the 61-year-old man in the driveway of his home with serious injuries as a result of being pinned between two cars.
Police conducted an investigation and determined that Morehead showed up at the home and the two began a verbal argument. The dispute escalated and Morehead entered her 2004 Chevrolet truck and intentionally drove it towards her husband, police said. She ultimately struck the man and pinned him between her truck and another vehicle, according to police.
Paramedics transported the man to Prince George’s County Shock Trauma in a helicopter to treat his injuries, police said. Officers transported Morehead to the Southern District Police Station in Edgewater, and charges were filed after consulting the Anne Arundel County State’s Attorney’s Office, according to the release.
