Lawton Woman Run Over by Car

On Monday night, a woman in Lawton, Oklahoma was run over by a car. According to KSWO ABC News Channel Seven, the incident happened in the 2100 block of Northwest Bessie Avenue. Witness reports indicate that two people were having an argument, when the suspect, Tayrean Miller, tried to push the victim, Darnesha Fuller, into his car. A person who knew Fuller tried to intervene, but said that the car ran her over.

Victim Suffers From Multiple Injuries

It’s also possible that Miller got back into the car and ran Fuller over a second time. She was rushed to the hospital, where she was treated for injuries to her head, left side of her body, both legs, hip and back. Other than witness reports, very few details have been released about this crash. There’s no word on Fuller’s current condition, or whether or not any charges have been filed against the driver.

Aggressive Driving Behaviors

Although the incident in Lawton is likely still under investigation, there’s always the possibility of aggressive driving and road rage when apparent altercations have occurred. If a person has intentionally run over another person, multiple times, there could be criminal charges pending.

Road Rage Facts

  • Aggressive driving causes 66 percent of car crash fatalities.
  • Males under the age of 19 are most likely to exhibit road rage.
  • Over a third of aggressive driving incidents involve a firearm.

Road Rage in Texoma

Aggressive driving behaviors can lead to road rage incidents. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) defines road rage as when a driver “commits moving traffic offenses so as to endanger other persons or property; an assault with a motor vehicle or other dangerous weapon by the operator or passenger of one motor vehicle on the operator or passenger of another motor vehicle.”
