HOBART | A woman was run over by a vehicle Tuesday night on U.S. 30.

A 46-year-old Hobart woman went into the Charter Fitness, in the 4800 block of East 81st Avenue, and told workers she was having suicidal thoughts, said Hobart police Sgt. Jeremy Ogden. 

At about 9:30 p.m., the woman lay down on the pavement of the eastbound lanes of U.S. 30 and was run over by a vehicle, Ogden said. Witnesses told police they didn't think the motorist realized a person had been hit, and the driver did not stop.

The stretch of U.S. 30 where the crash happened is not well-lit and witnesses couldn't provide a description of the car, Ogden said.

The woman was taken to an area hospital to be treated for a leg fracture, he said.
