An Orangeburg man claims a woman intentionally ran into a vehicle as he was changing the tire, causing an injury to his foot, according to a sheriff’s office incident report.
The incident began as two men were riding on Neeses Highway at 2 a.m. Tuesday. They had a flat tire.
One of the men contacted a woman for a ride.
When the woman arrived, the two began to argue. The woman said she wanted her house key back and the man allegedly threw it into the woods.
The other man alleges the woman then rear-ended the vehicle as he was working on it.
The vehicle went into a ditch and injured the man, the report said.
Orangeburg County Emergency Medical Services assessed the man's foot and determined he did not sustain major injuries, the report states. The man declined to go to the hospital.
The woman disputed the men’s story, stating that neither of them were near the broken-down vehicle at the time.
The officer reported both men smelled like alcohol.
