SALISBURY, Md. - A Salisbury man has been killed after a woman allegedly ran over him with her car, thinking she was stuck in snow.
The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office say the alleged involuntary manslaughter happened after 2 a.m. on Saturday. Responding deputies say they found Jeremiah Parkhurst trapped underneath the car of Erin Parkhurst on the 1500 block of S. Division St.
The victim was transported to PRMC, where he was later pronounced dead.
Authorities say the victim and suspect were familiar with each other and had actually been involved in an argument earlier. They believe E. Parkhurst had been trying to leave the residence in her car when she thought her car was stuck on snow. She allegedly went inside to get help, and when she returned to her car, the victim was discovered under her vehicle.
The Sheriff's Office say alcohol was a contributing factor.
E. Parkhurst is being charged with Involuntary Manslaughter, Homicide by Motor Vehicle While Intoxicated, DWI and other related traffic offenses. She is currently being held on bond.
