— A Rock Hill man was taken to the hospital after police say a woman he argued with purposely hit him with a car on Tuesday.

At about 6:30 a.m. Tuesday, police went to Piedmont Medical Center and spoke with a 49-year-old man who claimed that he was hit by a car on the 1000 block of Arlington Avenue the previous night, according to a Rock Hill police report. He told police he was visiting another woman, 53, who he works with and with whom he used to “hang out.”

While visiting the woman, another woman, 59, drove into the yard and began arguing with him, the report states. The man said he began walking to his Cypress Street home, but the woman, driving either a Cadillac or Lincoln Town Car, began traveling beside him and tried to speak with him.

The woman threatened him, the report states, before she made a “sudden movement” and hit him with the car, the report states. The man shouted, “you hit me,” and the woman replied that she would run him over again.

The man returned home, where his mother told him the woman had come by the house earlier that day, the report states. The victim told police he feared for his life, but did not call the police after the incident. He began feeling pain in his legs on Tuesday morning and decided to go to the hospital. The nurses convinced him to call authorities.

Police are still investigating. By Wednesday morning, no charges had been filed.
