Video: Son Runs Over Mom Being Loaded into Ambulance

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Austin police say a 68-year-old woman died after her son intentionally hit her with a car as she was being loaded into an ambulance.

Cpl. Wuthipong "Tank" Tantaksinanukij say police and Emergency Medical Services on Thursday evening had responded to a domestic disturbance call near a shopping center, where they found the woman with minor injuries.

He says as paramedics placed the woman, who was on a stretcher, into the ambulance, a car accelerated toward them.

Tantaksinanukij says, "They tried to get her out of the way, but the vehicle hit her and she died around 7:45 p.m."

The Austin American-Statesman (http://bit.ly/qNrbjQ) reports that no one else was injured.

Police say the man hit a marked police car as he tried to drive away and was arrested nearby.
