Platteville Man Accused of Running Over Ex-girlfriend in Longmont
A woman sustained a fractured pelvis on Friday night after Longmont police said her ex-boyfriend ran her over when she attempted to confront him over the insurance policy on his truck.
Online court records indicate Daniel Roberto Uribe, 24, of Platteville, is expected to be formally charged on Wednesday in Boulder County Court with felony vehicular assault, attempting to influence a public servant and leaving the scene of an accident involving serious bodily injury.
He is also expected to be charged with failure to report an accident, a traffic offense.
A Longmont police report states that the woman told police she came to Longmont late Friday to tell Uribe that she didn’t want him driving his truck until he stopped using her insurance policy.
The woman told police that she located Uribe near Fifth Avenue and Alpine Street, approached the truck and place her hands on top of the rolled-down window. An unidentified woman put her hands on the victim’s hands in an apparent effort to push her away from the truck.
Police allege that Uribe sped away, and the victim fell down and was pulled beneath the rear tire of the truck. She lay on the ground for about three minutes before she hopped back to her vehicle and called police.
The woman was taken to Longmont United Hospital, where she was found to have a fractured hip.
When police located Uribe in an alley near the 1400 block of Terry Street, they say he told them his name was Manuel Morales. Police were able to identify Uribe via a photograph, and he was charged with attempting to influence a public official.
Uribe has two convictions for driving under the influence and a conviction for driving without a license, according to online court records. He remained in custody at the Boulder County Jail on a $10,000 bond on Tuesday and is due back in court on Wednesday.
