MCLENNAN COUNTY, Texas (KWTX) - A woman who was critically injured when she and at least three other women were run down by a car during a fight at a “big party” over the weekend outside of Waco is in intensive care and on ventilator, McLennan County Sheriff Parnell McNamara said Monday.

“She’s still in dire straits,” he said.

Carlos Jarrell Alexander, 19, was arrested after the incident, which happened during a party overnight Saturday in the 5400 block of Orchard Lane east of Bellmead attended by 100 to 200 people.

He remained in the McLennan County Jail Monday in lieu of $100,000 bond.

After the fight broke out, a man drove into the crowd and struck at least four women.

The most seriously injured of the four was run over three times, authorities said.

Investigators found the car on Sunday abandoned in Temple.

The car appeared to have been struck by gunfire, McNamara said.

The sheriff said more arrests will likely be made in connection to the incident.
