A Bridgeport woman was flown to a Fort Worth hospital after accidentally being run over by her daughter following a domestic disturbance near Cottondale early Saturday morning.
According to investigators, it appears Shanda Holsted, 38, and her husband (whose name had not been obtained) got into a fight and left a home on Bullion Road, near Luke Road, on foot, intoxicated.
Holsted’s daughter, Parish Post, 18, of Bridgeport and her friend jumped in a vehicle to look for them. Post attempted to make a U-turn on a blind curve on Bullion Road and struck her mother, who had fallen in the ditch.
Holsted was flown to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth from a nearby field with “incapacitating injuries,” but they did not appear to be life-threatening.
Post was issued citations for no license and no insurance. The accident is still under investigation, and other charges may be filed.
Cottondale volunteer firefighters, Wise County Sheriff’s deputies and Texas Department of Public Safety Troopers worked the accident.
