Limo Operator Runs Over Wife

Posted on August 4, 2004 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

KEY WEST, FLA. – A Grassy Key woman was hospitalized after her limo operator husband allegedly ran over her in his limousine in front of the couple's home after an argument Aug. 1, then kept on driving.

Ronald Christison, 57, was arrested a short time later by Monroe County sheriff's deputies and charged with leaving the scene of an accident with injuries. He told police he didn't see his wife when he turned the vehicle around to leave and struck her.

Christison, who co-owns A-1 Cabs in Marathon, told police he left the couple's home to let his wife "calm down" after a fight, backed up his maroon-colored vehicle to leave, and was unaware he had just run over her.

"He said they had just had their apartment painted and were celebrating the painting being finished with a few drinks when she started an argument," sheriff's spokeswoman Becky Herrin said.

A short time later, dispatchers received a call from the couple's landlords, who said one of their tenants was in the driveway screaming.

When deputies arrived, they found the victim still on the ground with tire imprints on her blouse, Herrin said.

In the police report, the victim told her landlords that her husband had left the tracks, but when police later asked what happened, she became uncooperative and said, "I got hit by a car." Donna Christison declined to give police a statement.

Ronald Christison was arrested when he returned to the house after someone contacted him on his cell phone. His wife was taken to Fishermen's Hospital in Marathon and was later transferred to a trauma center in Miami.
