A Mesa woman is accused of hitting her estranged husband with her car and then ramming the vehicle into his house in Yavapai County, deputies said.

Investigators said 32-year-old Jennifer Fletcher pinned her husband between her Toyota Prius and his truck during an argument Tuesday morning in Chino Valley. The victim was able to break free and hobble into his house, where Fletcher then crashed her car through the front door, deputies said.

The couple’s children, ages 4, 12 and 16, were in the living room, just a few feet from the vehicle when it came careening into the house.

Fletcher’s husband suffered injuries to his leg and torso, and the children were not hurt.

Fletcher was arrested and charged with aggravated assault and four counts of felony criminal damage and endangerment.
