NEW CASTLE (September 14, 2015) — A New Castle woman was arrested and charged with battery resulting in bodily injury and failure to stop after an accident after she ran over a pedestrian and then bit him.
According to The Star Press, Taylor K. Groce, 22, hit a man in the 1400 block of South 21st Street on September 4.
The victim says he was yelling at Groce to turn on her headlights and stop speeding.
The man suffered abrasions to his legs, arms, and back from the accident.
While he was lying on the ground, Groce allegedly got out of her car and bit the victim on the back.
Groce denies that she hit the accuser with her car.
According to The Star Press, her trial is set for October 27 in Henry Circuit Court 3.
