MICHIGAN CITY — Two Michigan City men remained in critical condition Tuesday after allegedly being run over by a woman in a sport utility vehicle.

Christopher Cooper, 45, and Damon Moye, 38, were flown to Memorial Hospital in South Bend with injuries described by police as severe.

Tonette Logmann, 45, was taken by a third helicopter to another hospital and later released, police said, adding the Michigan City-area woman apparently hit her head on the windshield when she struck a parked car.

Michigan City Police traffic division commander Lt. Jeff Loniewski said there was a gathering at a residence in the 800 block of Elston Street when some type of altercation broke out.

Logmann allegedly hit the accelerator and crashed through a chain link fence before striking both men in a yard just a short distance away, Loniewski said.

Police say she fled and crashed into a parked car on Elston Street about three blocks to the south.

"Both of the gentlemen were flown to trauma centers in critical condition," LaPorte County Emergency Medical Service public information officer Elmer Kasinger said. He had no specific information about their injuries.

A warrant will be sought to charge Logmann with leaving the scene of an accident, Loniewski said. Any additional charges will hinge on the investigation. Results from toxicology reports are also pending.
