FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - A fight between two women near Fort Lauderdale took a dangerous turn when, authorities said, one of them intentionally ran over the other one, leading to the driver’s arrest and sending the victim to the hospital.
Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a hit-and-run near the 2600 block of Northwest 13th Court, just before 9 a.m., Friday.
Upon arrival, deputies located a female victim who showed injuries consistent with being hit by a vehicle.
A preliminary investigation showed that the two women were involved in an ongoing disturbance since at least Thursday night that resulted in the hit-and-run, Friday.
“My daughter woke me up last night between 10:30 and 11,” said Tina Gore, the victim’s mother.
Gore, who identified the victim as 20-year-old Antonesha Gore, said the two women are childhood friends and their argument started on Thursday night.
At some point during the altercation, Gore said, the rear window of her own SUV was smashed.
But things would take an even more serious turn on Friday morning.
Dramatic cellphone video posted to social media captured Antonesha hanging on to the hood of the other woman’s car. Moments later, the woman fell off the car and was run over.
“First she ran her over, then she dragged her all the way, like a block or two from my house. She came again to run my daughter’s head over. Also, [Antonesha] has a big open gash on her head,” said Gore.
Rescue crews transported Antonesha to a local hospital with serious injuries. She underwent surgery on Friday afternoon.
“I’m going crazy right know. I’m just trying to hold it up for the sake of my two other kids,” said Gore.
According to investigators, the driver of the vehicle, later identified as Linouria Wilson, fled the scene but was caught after BSO’s Real Time Crime Center located the vehicle she was driving.
The car involved was towed away Friday afternoon. The reason why the women were fighting remains unknown.
Wilson faces a charge of attempted murder. She is expected to face a judge on Saturday.
“I want her to go to jail, and I want her to do the maximum time,” said Gore. “That’s it. That’s all I can say right now.”
