The driver, a 44-year-old woman, was arrested and taken to hospital under police guard where she received treatment for a fractured wrist.
Upon her release from hospital, the woman was taken to Auburn Police Station and charged with murder (DV).
“Police will allege in court that the man and woman – who were known to each other – were involved in a verbal altercation, before the woman got in the Toyota and deliberately struck the man, causing fatal injuries,” NSW police said in a statement.
The woman was refused bail to appear before Parramatta Bail Court today.
