READING, Ohio (WXIX) - A Roselawn woman is under arrest after police say she purposely hit and seriously hurt her own sister with her minivan and fled the scene.

It was reported on Jan. 17 outside The Lounge Bar at 7990 Reading Road in Reading, police wrote in court records.

Terra Martin and her sister argued in the parking lot, an affidavit states, and then she used her silver Dodge Caravan to strike her sister, seriously hurting her.

“(The victim’s) lower leg sustained a compound fracture after being struck. (The suspect) then fled the scene after causing harm to her sister,” a Reading police lieutenant wrote in the court filing.

Martin, 38, of Roselawn, is held without bond at the Hamilton County Justice Center.

She faces charges of felonious assault, domestic violence and leaving the scene of an accident.

She is scheduled to appear in Hamilton County Municipal Court at 9 a.m. Friday.
