OR woman charged with running over grandmother

An Oak Ridge woman was arrested last week after allegedly running over her grandmother’s leg with a car following an argument about her car keys. Oak Ridge Police say that Mattie Kelly had hidden her granddaughter’s keys on Thursday because she was concerned that the younger woman was under the influence and should not be driving. 30-year-old Katherine Johnson found the keys and the two women argued as she tried to pull out of the driveway of the Hendrix Drive home they shared. Kelly tried to remove the keys from the ignition, at which time Johnson is accused of backing up with the driver’s side door open and knocking Kelly to the ground, where she struck her head on the pavement. Johnson is then accused of running over her grandmother’s leg and driving away from the scene. Kelly was taken to Methodist Medical Center, where she was admitted for treatment of her injuries, and Johnson was arrested Friday. As of late this morning, Johnson remained in custody at the Anderson County Jail on bonds totaling $25,000 on a charge of aggravated assault.
