A 20-year-old Indiana University of Pennsylvania student was charged Thursday with driving under the influence of alcohol and aggravated assault after allegedly crashing her car while attempting to run over a man, university police said.

Amber R. Lehman, 20, of Valencia, Butler County, was released from Indiana County Jail after posting $5,000.

Police said they were summoned to the 400 block of South 13th Street around 1:18 a.m. to investigate an accident. Officers discovered Lehman, who was injured, lying on the ground.

Police allege Lehman got into an argument with an unidentified man inside her vehicle. He got out when Lehman stopped for a red light at Oakland Avenue.

Police said Lehman then backed up her vehicle and accelerated "rapidly in an attempt to strike the male who was on the sidewalk."

The man jumped over a concrete barrier and then Lehman's vehicle hit the barrier, police said.

Lehman was taken to Indiana Regional Medical Center for treatment before her arrest. A preliminary hearing is tentatively scheduled Tuesday before Clymer District Judge George Thachik.

Lehman is majoring in hospitality management, according to IUP.
