Her marriage proposal spurned, she sped off in his Hummer — with him clinging to the roof


A Minneapolis woman seriously injured one of her friends when she drove off in the man’s Hummer while he was clinging to its roof rack, police say.

The incident reportedly followed the man’s rejection of her proposal of marriage.

PaNhia Vang, 29, was arrested Sunday afternoon when she showed up at the hospital to visit the man.

The episode began hours earlier, around 3 a.m., outside a home in White Bear Township, about 10 miles north of St. Paul.

Vang had been drinking, so her friend gave her a ride to the home in his Hummer while another sober driver followed them in Vang’s car.

After they pulled up to the residence, Vang asked the man if he would marry her, according to his account to police officers. He declined, got out of the vehicle and told her to do the same.

Instead, Vang slid into the driver’s seat and took off, the complaint said. The man jumped into her car, a Toyota RAV4, and followed her for about three miles. When she eventually pulled over, he ran to the car and pounded on the window, telling her to get out.

Just as he placed his hands on the Hummer’s roof rack, she “floored it,” the complaint said.

The man told officers he saw the speedometer reach 80 mph, and he was afraid he was going to die as she sped down the road.

He lost his grip and fell to the road. When he  regained consciousness, he was lying next to a guard rail. Another friend who had been tailing Vang took the man to a St. Paul hospital, where he was treated for multiple broken bones.

When Vang was taken into custody at the hospital that afternoon, she told police that she only had three drinks the previous evening. She said she did not recall being told not to drive the Hummer nor that her friend was clinging to it.

Vang was charged Tuesday with theft of a motor vehicle and two counts of criminal vehicular operation resulting in substantial bodily harm, according to the complaint filed in Ramsey County District Court.

The counts allege Vang was both grossly negligent in her conduct and under the influence of alcohol.

No attorney was listed for her in court records.
