TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – A property dispute leaves one woman severely injured.

Friday afternoon, just before 4:00, the Vigo County Sheriff’s Department responded to a home on the 4600 block of State Road 63 on what police are calling a family-neighbor dispute.

Witnesses report a 59-year-old female was upset and drove her Jeep through a related 91-year-old man’s yard, causing property damage.

The man, who was on a riding lawn mower at the time, confronted the female in the driveway.

An argument between the two escalated to the point that the female exited the Jeep with a machete.

As the man quickly turned the riding mower, the mower deck ran over the female’s lower leg resulting in a severe foot injury.

The 59-year-old female was airlifted to Methodist Hospital in critical condition.

The case will be turned over to the Prosecutors Office to determine if any charges will be filed.
