A breast cancer survivor who was also pregnant was rammed by a male driver and then run over by his car in Douglasville. He is being charged with murder and aggravated assault, with more charges possible.
Janice Pitts was sitting at a traffic light on Highway 5 in Douglasville Wednesday when her Lincoln Navigator was hit from behind by Dewey Green, 23.
“He just kept hitting us, he just kept hitting us,” said Pitts’ daughter, Iesha Davis, according to WSB-TV.
Davis was riding with her mother at the time with their 4-year -old son in the back.
When Pitts got out of the Navigator assess the damage, Green pinned Pitts between the two trucks and then kept ramming her before running her over.
“I’m banging on the window, ‘Please, you’re crushing my mom, you’re crushing my mom. Please, you’re crushing my mom. He wouldn’t look at me, He kept his face straight and kept his foot down on the gas,’” Davis told the station.
Pitts and Davis were on their way to work, when the nightmare began.
“He backed up, my mom’s body dropped,” said Davis.
Police say Green inexplicably ran over Pitts’ crushed body.
“After that, I just completely lost it. I don’t understand why. I don’t understand why,” said Davis. “I’ll never ever get the image of my mom lifeless body lying on the pavement and the man ran her over like she was nothing.”
Witnesses told the station Green ran over the median, came across a grassy knoll and ended up sideways across Bill Arp Road where witnesses managed to stop him.
Police on the scene were shocked at the maliciousness and callousness of the crime. They also said Green seemed dazed and was reeking of alcohol.
“No doubt there’s alcohol involved,” said Stan Copeland with Douglas County police.
Davis says her mom, a two-time breast cancer survivor, died on the scene. She was also expecting another child of her own.
“He could be charged with feticide depending on how far along,” investigators said.
Green is an Alabama native and his father drove into town to try to get answers and help police figure out a possible motive. Police say Green’s father told them his son had been acting strange in recent months.
When asked if the family had a history of mental problems, Copeland said “none that we can find and his family did not mention anything,” said Copeland.
Police are running toxicology tests to see if any other drugs were in Copeland’s system at the time of this horrific incident.
