An Indianapolis mother of two is still in the intensive care unit at Wishard Hospital while her ex-husband is accused of hitting her with his pickup truck.
Theresa Mynatt suffered a shattered pelvis, serious lacerations on her left thigh and other injuries.
A resident living next to the alley called 911.
Police said Steven Mynatt left the scene and officers found him at his home walking his dog. He admitted to police he had been drinking. He was arrested and slated to face battery, domestic battery and criminal recklessness charges.
Theresa Mynatt's sister Crissie Russell told Fox 59 she is stunned by the incident.
"I'm shocked more than anybody cause I never thought in a million years that this would happen," said Russell. "I think he needs to be put away."
Steven Mynatt has been officially charged with two counts of criminal recklessness and one count of failing to stop at an accident.
Russell believes Steven Mynatt intended to kill her sister and is hoping to speak with detectives to give them additional information about the night’s events that might yield harsher charges.
"She probably would've died. And I would've never seen her again."
Mynatt’s next court appearance is scheduled for November 21.
