An auto-pedestrian accident in Marion County turned into a crime scene Monday, after one woman was flown to the hospital. Tuesday, deputies told us they're now considering it an accident.
This happened on Shanty Hill Road in Four States Monday afternoon. Deputies said George Markley was drunk while he was driving a gray car, and ran over a woman's foot.
Since alcohol was involved, deputies said the car was moving while she tried to get in the car, which caused her to slip and hit her head on the road. Apparently Markley and the woman's boyfriend then got into a fight, so Markley went back to his home just a few yards away.
After deputies drew their weapons and forced their way into his home, Markley was taken into police custody. He was later charged with third offense DUI and driving on a revoked license for DUI.
Still no word on the woman's name or condition at this time.
