Report: Man runs over woman with car, tells mom she cheated on him

DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - A Goose Creek man has been charged with attempted murder after intentionally running a woman over in a parking lot, authorities say.

Corey Adams, 27, is facing a charge of attempted murder, according to an incident report.

Deputies responding to the Publix parking lot in Knightsville earlier found a woman bleeding from the head. The woman told deputies she was walking in the parking lot around 11 p.m. when a car approached from behind and hit her.

Deputies collected what appeared to be three pieces of fractured plastic materials that belonged to a vehicle headlight, the report states. Two witnesses on the scene described a white car that struck the victim.

Deputies say they learned from dispatchers a witness had been following the car believed to have been involved toward Summerville. Goose Creek Police eventually located the vehicle at a home on Indigo Road, the report states. The vehicle fit the description given by witnesses and had a broken headlight and broken windshield on the driver's side, the report states.

Adams was taken into custody early Monday morning, the report states.

His mother told deputies Adams told her he had run over his girlfriend Sunday night and claimed he "had to do it because she cheated on him."

A judge set the man's bond at $100,000, according to Dorchester County Sheriff's Maj. Tony Phinney.
