Police have been told the pair had been arguing when the woman got into her car and drove away before returning a short time later and allegedly running over her brother.
He was treated at the scene for multiple injuries, including a fractured shoulder and several broken ribs, before being taken to Wagga Rural Referral Hospital in a serious condition.
The 19-year-old woman was also assessed by paramedics at the scene.
Speaking to reporters at Wagga Wagga Police Station on Wednesday, Inspector Peter McLay said the man has since discharged himself from hospital and is now back in Temora.
The area’s leading newspaper quoted a NSW Ambulance spokesman as saying “alcohol was a factor” in the incident.
