Woman arrested, accused of running over ex-husband's new fiancée

A woman from Lorton, Virginia has been arrested after she allegedly ran over her ex-husband's new fiancée. Margaret Henry, 48, was driving a Hyundai when she drove through a yard, aiming right for her ex-husband and his soon-to-be wife who were standing in the driveway.

The victim was struck and was left "entangled in the windshield" of the car. Henry's ex-husband wasn't harmed but was able to grab a hold of his (crazy) ex-wife and hold her down until police arrived on the scene. The woman who was hit by the car was rushed to a nearby hospital with severe injuries. She underwent surgery to remove the lower portion of one of her legs.

Henry was arrested and charged with "aggravated malicious wounding." Police are conducting an investigation to try and figure out what might have prompted the attack. An exact motive has not been released but some people that know Henry and her ex say that their relationship has been toxic.
