NEWTON FALLS, Ohio (WKBN) – A Newton Falls woman is facing charges, accused of running a man over with a car.

The victim, 23-year-old Tyler Whitacre, told police that Brittany Sullivan hit him with a Subaru Outback. He said they had been staying at the hotel together.

A woman who works at the hotel told police that she heard a car flying down the driveway and said she thought she saw feet tumbling out of the bottom of the car. She said she then saw the man fall out of the bottom of the car, so that’s when she called 911.

Police said a search of Sullivan and Whitacre’s hotel room uncovered a glass pipe filled with white residue on the nightstand. According to a police report, the man admitted to using cocaine.

Paraphernalia charges are pending against Sullivan and the man

Sullivan is also charged with felonious assault.

Sullivan was booked into the Trumbull County Jail on Monday, where she is still being held. She is scheduled to appear in court for her arraignment on Thursday.
