St. Louis-area municipal worker accused of running over TV photojournalist

A municipal worker in suburban St. Louis has been arrested after allegedly running over and seriously injuring a TV station photojournalist as reporters hurled questions at a village leader who sought refuge in a public works truck.

FOX affiliate KTVI reported that the Velda City Police Department was called to investigate last month in Hillsdale, which has a population of around 8,100 and is one of nearly 90 municipalities in St. Louis County.

Police said the worker was taken into custody this week and released pending a prosecutor’s review to decide if charges will be filed.

Hillsdale officials didn’t immediately respond to a phone message seeking comment. Moore has a history of not talking to reporters, and a sign at a small corner store where she holds court bars members of the media.
