DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Police on Monday identified a woman who investigators believe was intentionally run down by a driver and killed as she walked her dog in Des Moines neighborhood Sunday.

Police said Lauren Rice, 38, and her dog, Holiday, were killed in the Sunday morning incident. Officers found Rice and the dog dead at the scene. A pickup truck believed to have been driven by Jason Robert Sassman, 49, jumped a curb, crashed through a utility pole and drove through several yards before hitting Rice and the dog, police said.

Police said Sassman continued on for several blocks in the truck until it became disabled, then fled on foot before he was arrested. He’s charged with first-degree murder and animal neglect.
