Shortly before closing Sunday evening the good vibes at Thunder on Water were marred by a hit and run on a sheriff’s reserve deputy.
According to Sheriff Alton Strider, a woman he identified as Tiffany Newman, 21, of Winona, was traveling south on the Tow Road when she was stopped by Reserve Deputy Joe Ward, who was directing traffic.
For a reason that is not abundantly clear, Newman suddenly sped up and rolled Ward onto the hood of her Toyota.
The accident happened about 7:30 p.m., Strider said.
