COLUMBUS, Ohio – A television reporter became part of the news on Tuesday when he was run over while on a story.

Steve Levine, a reporter for WSYX-TV/WTTE-TV (ABC6/FOX28), was allegedly run down by a woman while doing a hidden-camera interview at her South Side home, Columbus police said.

Witnesses say Terresa Peters drove her vehicle over Levine in the rear of Peters’s apartment at 48 W, Neff Avenue shortly after 6:30 p.m., investigators said.

UPDATE: According to ABC6/FOX28, police have confirmed that Peters turned herself in to authorities this morning.

Levine, 51, was in stable condition at Grant Medical Center, according to police and the station.

“ABC 6 Reporter Steve Levine is being treated at Grant Medical Center. His leg is broken in three places, but thankfully he’s expected to be okay,” said a posting on the station’s website.

An arrest warrant was filed for Peters, 27, on a charge of felonious assault.
