Woman Injured by Lawnmower During Argument
A Vigo County woman was airlifted to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis in critical condition Friday after a family property dispute turned violent.
According to witnesses the 59-year-old woman was upset and drove her Jeep through her 91-year-old male relative‘s yard, causing property damage.
The man, who was on a zero radius mower at the time, confronted the woman in the driveway.
An argument escalated to the point that the woman got out of the Jeep brandishing a machete.
As the man quickly turned the riding mower, the mower deck ran over the woman‘s lower leg resulting in a severe injury to her foot.
