A woman hit a man with her car after he assaulted her in Pittsburgh’s Brookline neighborhood early Friday morning, according to the city department of public safety.

The man and woman had been arguing inside a local business and moved outside onto West Liberty Avenue around 2 a.m., according to the department.

The man allegedly assaulted the woman, then walked away, police said.

The woman got into her car. The man came back, but the woman did not see him. She struck him as she started to drive away, the department said.

When first responders got there the man was conscious and talking. He was taken to a hospital in serious but stable condition.

Police are investigating. No charges have been filed.

Correction: An earlier version of this story misidentified the neighborhood where this incident happened.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
