Fremantle: Woman allegedly run down by a car before driver crashes into a fence in suspected domestic violence attack

A man has been charged over a suspected domestic violence incident in Perth  where a woman was allegedly run down by a car before the driver ploughed into a fence.

Police rushed to the scene near the intersection of Amherst Street and Blinco Street in Fremantle, following reports of a collision on Saturday afternoon.

CCTV footage showed the car crashing into a fence moments after a woman was allegedly run down in the street.

The woman fell out of the car which allegedly continued down the street before mounting the kerb and smashing into the front fence of a nearby home.

It’s believed a man and a woman — both in their 20s — who are known to each other were allegedly involved in an altercation in the car before the incident, the West Australian reported.

Another neighbour tried to help turn the car off but it was too mangled. 

 

Off-duty nurses provided first aid to the injured woman until paramedics arrived at the scene.
