YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

An apparent love triangle has resulted in a six count criminal indictment being handed up against a 22-year-old Youngstown woman who allegedly ran over a pregnant woman.

The  Mahoning County Grand Jury on Thursday indicted Takia Wright of Youngstown on two counts of felonious assault, and four counts of endangering children.

Witnesses told police in April that Wright backed her car into an S-U-V at the Valley View Apartments on Tyrell Avenue during an argument over a man. Seated inside the S-U-V at the time of the crash was the son of Amorniqua Lyons.

Both Lyons and Wright tell police that they are pregnant by Wright's estranged husband.

According to witnesses, when Lyons stepped in front of Wright's vehicle to keep it from leaving the parking lot, Wright allegedly ran over Lyons, who was taken to the hospital with non life threatening injuries.

A two year old female, who was in Wright's car, received hospital treatment for a head injury.
