Cops say pregnant woman runs over other pregnant woman

Staff report


A 22-year-old city woman is in the Mahoning County jail on $15,000 bond after police say she ran over a pregnant woman at the Valley View Apartments in Youngstown about midnight Saturday.

Takia Wright is also seven months pregnant and was arraigned on a charge of felonious assault Monday in municipal court.

The same man fathered both children the women are carrying, reports said.

Reports said Wright and the victim were arguing in the parking lot when Wright rammed her car into the victim’s car, where the victim’s son was. The victim then stood in front of Wright’s car in an attempt to keep her from leaving, and she ran the woman over then drove away, reports said.

The woman, who is four months pregnant, was taken to St. Elizabeth Health Center and her son was taken to St. Elizabeth by family members, reports said.

As police were gathering information, Wright returned, reports said. She had three children in her car and one of them, a 2-year-old, was taken to St. Elizabeth to be treated for head injuries he sustained when Wright rammed her car into the victim’s car, reports said.
