Police say a man stole a woman’s purse Thursday in the Evansville area, then ran her over as he attempted to escape.
The Evansville Police Department reports that 23-year-old Ryan Thompson grabbed a purse belonging to 32-year-old Evansville resident Angeonne Bryant while both were at Wood Creek Inn & Suites, located at 2530 U.S. Route 41. Mr. Thompson ran to his car with Ms. Bryant right behind him.
As he backed out of a parking space, Mr. Thompson’s car ran over Ms. Bryant’s legs, then ran her over a second time when he pulled forward. Paramedics responded to the scene and transported Ms. Bryant to St. Mary’s Medical Center for treatment.
Police caught up with Mr. Thompson and he was arrested on suspicion of possessing marijuana and robbery. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety reports that a pedestrian dies in a U.S. traffic accident every 110 minutes and one is injured every nine minutes.
Seeing a copy of the Indiana accident report is extremely important. Reports are critical to professional investigations and also serve to create peace of mind for the victims and their families. Without an official report, you’ll likely be unaware of several key facts that help to explain how the accident happened, and you’ll also be unable to dispute any inaccuracies the accident report may contain.
3 Facts to remember about Indiana Accident reports:
If you file an insurance claim or lawsuit, this document will be the first piece of evidence that everyone wants to see.
An Indiana accident report’s main purpose is to tell what happened: how, where, when, and to whom.
The “how” of an accident report is the officer’s best after-the-fact interpretation of the crash. Sometimes it’s possible to amend disputed facts in a report.
