Police Say Man Ran Over Wife, Child

July 24, 1998

GARY, Ind. (AP) _ A man angry with his wife drove over her and their 4-year-old son and then ran the woman over again as she hobbled away on a broken leg, authorities said.

Leonard Brooks, 24, was charged Thursday with attempted murder and battery.

Kimberly Brooks, 32, and Leonard ``Trey″ Brooks III were treated and released from the hospital. Mrs. Brooks had two broken legs while her son was treated for several cuts on his face, a hospital spokeswoman said. Mrs. Brooks’ unborn child was unharmed.

Brooks apparently got upset when his wife and son decided to walk home from a relative’s house Wednesday night.
