Fredericksburg woman accused of driving into her husband
By KEITH EPPS
A Fredericksburg woman is accused of attempted first-degree murder after witnesses saw her drive her van into her husband as he was walking along Dixon Street on Sunday night, police said.
City police spokeswoman Natatia Bledsoe said the incident took place about 10:30 p.m. in the 500 block of Dixon Street at the bottom of the westbound ramp from the Blue and Gray Parkway.
A state trooper stopped when he saw a Chrysler Pacifica angled into a guardrail on Dixon and a woman standing over a man, kicking him repeatedly. The trooper intervened and notified city police.
Witnesses said they saw a van being driven in the wrong direction crash into a guardrail. They also told police they saw a man crawl from under the vehicle and saw the woman get out of the van and attack him.
Quaneisha Domonique Torres, 21, was placed in the Rappahannock Regional Jail under no bond.
Her 31-year-old husband was taken to Mary Washington Hospital. He suffered a broken ankle that will require surgery, a head injury that required stitches and assorted other injuries.
The victim was heading toward his home in Hazel Hill, a short distance away. Bledsoe said she doesn’t know what the wife was angry about or why the husband was walking.
