Hot Springs Halloween road rage victim speaks


HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV)- After spending five months in a wheelchair and only just recently learning to walk again on her own, Jennifer Rowton spent Halloween with kids and grandkids, but this year they'll just collect candy at a local church.

Rowton is a victim of a road rage incident involving Twila Watson, who was arrested last Halloween for speeding through a Hot Springs neighborhood, running into parked cars, and crashing into a tree all with her two children in the back seat. She then backed up and ran over Rowton. "I'm not going to say we haven't been kind of nervous this week leading up to it but we're doing pretty well," she said. "I still have a few surgeries ahead of me and different things but a year later I'm thankful to be alive."
