    Baltimore City Police said an altercation at a Fells Point bar caused a driver to crash into several vehicles before running down a woman in an out of control scene caught on camera.

    Police said Orlando Redd, 28, of Parkville, was assaulted inside a bar in the 700 block of South Broadway around 2:15 a.m. Saturday. After fleeing the bar, Reed got into his minivan where the assault continued. A video posted on YouTube shows a man hitting the driver's side window as Reed drives off, slamming into a stopped car at a traffic light.

    Investigators said people attempted to get inside the van as Reed put the vehicle in reverse, jumped the curb and hit a woman who was walking out of the DogWatch Tavern.

    The van lurched forward along the curb before getting back on the roadway. Police stopped the van a few blocks away at the intersection of South Broadway and Eastern Avenue.

    The woman has been identified as Jill Boram by a GoFundMe page, and police said she suffered a fractured skull, broken ribs, a bruised lung, trauma to her pelvis and lacerations to her hips.

    Redd was charged with first-degree assault, two counts of second-degree assault, malicious destruction of property, two counts of endangerment and numerous traffic citations. Police are also searching for the men who attempted to assault Redd while he was in the van.
