SPANISH FORK — A Utah County woman remains in a medically induced coma as the woman accused of running her over with a trailer now faces four felony charges.

According to the Daily Herald, Dianna Carlson, 52, was charged in Provo's 4th District Court Wednesday with aggravated assault resulting in serious bodily injury, leaving the scene of an accident, possession or use of a controlled substance, use or possession of drugs, and driving on a revoked license.

Police arrested Carlson last week following what started as a property dispute in Spanish Fork.

Police said two women were arguing over items being removed from a residence. As one woman was about to drive off in her truck, another woman put her arm in the partially rolled down window, got it caught, but the driver drove away.

The victim was dragged a short distance before her arm became dislodged, she fell, and a trailer being towed by the truck ran over her head. The Herald reported she remains in critical condition.

Police arrested Carlson several blocks away. They said she tested positive for meth.

Carlson also faces charges in three other cases.

An account has been set up for donations for the victim's family at Zion's Bank under the Debbie Butler Donation Account.*
