A woman is jailed, accused of intentionally running over another woman with her car on the 200 block of Anaconda Street, Saturday, Aug. 2.
Wolf Point police responded to the 200 block of Anaconda Street at 11:22 a.m., for a report that a Dodge Caravan minivan fled the scene after striking a woman in a gravel parking lot near the corner of Third Avenue South.
Police did not identify the victim; however, several people reported that she is Monica Campbell, 51, of Wolf Point.
Wolf Point Police chief Jeff Harada said she was transported by ambulance to Northeast Montana Health Services - Wolf Point Campus and later flown to a Billings hospital.
Police did not state her condition, only saying injuries were very serious.
Harada said witnesses told police an altercation between the two women began in Arlo’s Bar. Both women went outside and one of them got in the silver Dodge Caravan and struck the other woman in the nearby parking lot.
Officers located the minivan about a half-hour later on the 500 block of Cascade Street and arrested Ramona Fern Clark Vivier, 41, of Wolf Point for aggravated assault, driving under the influence, driving without a license and no insurance, and booked her into the tribal jail in Poplar.
Police took Vivier to the NEMHS hospital for a blood draw, which Harada said is standard procedure for motor vehicle crashes where there are serious injuries. According to information contained in the charging documents Vivier is charged with driving under the influence, but authorities did not say what her blood alcohol content was.
“The case file has been released to tribal criminal investigation,” Harada said.
Investigators from the Fort Peck Tribes Department of Law and Justice did not return phone calls from The Herald-News by deadline on Tuesday, Aug. 5.
Harada said the United States Attorney in Great Falls might take over the case.
Wolf Point police also arrested a passenger in Vivier’s vehicle. Mareno Eder, 40, of Wolf Point, was arrested following a pat down search. He was booked into the tribal jail, charged with unlawful possession of prescription medication.
