Man in Critical Condition After Being Run Over in Bowling Green Alley

A Bowling Green man is in critical but stable condition after being run over in an alley early morning on Oct. 28

Police say 33-year-old Robert W. Eaton was run over by 32-year-old Kenneth Smith, Jr. in the alley behind 427 Park Row.

Smith told police he didn't see anyone around his GMC Yukon when he got in it just after 2 a.m. that morning.

Smith said he thought he had hit the curb as he backed up until his headlights showed Eaton lying in the alley.

Smith had someone call 911.

Police detected alcohol on Smith, but he passed all three field sobriety tests and voluntarily submitted to a blood draw.

No charges have yet been filed.
