A Bensalem woman remains in critical condition today after her sister allegedly ran her over with a minivan. The sister is in jail, facing a charge of aggravated assault.  

The fight was allegedly over a ride to the Neshaminy Mall.

Anum Raza refused to drive her sister, Redah Raza, saying she had to work, according to the criminal complaint filed against Anum.

Anum allegedly told police that Redah stood in front of the minivan, prompting Anum to inch forward in hopes her sister would move out of the way. But Redah jumped on the hood instead, and Anum accelerated, driving as fast as 30 mph before braking, police said.

Redah, 20, fell off the hood. Anum told police she meant to place the van in park but accelerated instead, driving over her sister, court documents stated.

Charges filed against Anum, 24, include aggravated assault, a first-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison.
