A 44-year-old Sterling man received a second surgery on his legs Wednesday, one of which he may lose, after his girlfriend caught him with another woman and hit him with her car Saturday, said Sgt. Robb Quelland of the Soldotna police.
At 10 p.m. Saturday, Soldotna police received a report that Brenda J. Ginter, 45, of Sterling, had hit Donald Clark while driving a 1997 Ford Taurus in the parking lot of an apartment complex at 385 Redoubt Ave. in Soldotna.
Clark was pinned between the car and a mound of dirt, seriously injuring his legs. Ginter allegedly tried to hit him a second time, but he was pulled to safety by a resident in the area.
Central Emergency Services paramedics took Clark to Central Peninsula General Hospital, where he immediately was taken into surgery.
Soldotna police located Ginter shortly after the incident and arrested her on charges of first-degree attempted murder and first-degree assault and took her to Wildwood Pretrial Facility, where she is being held without bail.
“What witnesses are stating, is that he was walking away and she accelerated at him and ran into him,” Quelland said.
The woman Ginter allegedly was upset over, lives in the apartment complex, where the incident occurred.
Alcohol and drug use are not suspected of being involved in the incident.
