Woman accused of using her car to mow down her partner near police station

A WOMAN has been charged with furious driving after allegedly using her car to mow down her partner in the small NSW town of Inverell, in the state’s north.

The dramatic scenes unfolded in a laneway around the corner from the courthouse and local police station in the town’s CBD on Wednesday afternoon.

It was around 2.15pm when the 46-year-old woman allegedly used her Ford Falcon sedan to run down her 39-year-old partner as he walked along Campbell Lane.


Police said the force of the impact catapulted the man over the bonnet of the sedan before the woman allegedly put the Falcon into reverse and accelerated towards him.

The man jumped out of the way to avoid being struck a second time but the woman allegedly jumped out of the car and started to bash him.

Thankfully, the man was not seriously injured and suffered only minor cuts and abrasions.

His partner was arrested at the scene and later charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm and drive furiously in motor vehicle causing bodily harm.

She was remanded in custody overnight and was scheduled to front Inverell Local Court today.
