BETHEL, Alaska — A 22-year-old Mountain Village woman is accused of intentionally running her all-terrain vehicle into a woman who was pushing a toddler in a stroller.

KYUK reports ( the ATV driver, Georgianne Hanson, was arguing with Jeanette Myre, who was pushing the stroller Wednesday.

Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters says Hanson allegedly informed Myre she was going to hit her with the vehicle. Peters says Hanson drove a way for a bit, turned around and drove into Myre and left the scene without rendering aid.

The woman and child were flown to Bethel for care of non-life-threatening injuries.

Hanson has been charged with assault and leaving the scene of the accident. Attempts to reach attorneys with the public defender's office were not immediately successful after business hours Thursday.
