Eagle Lake man charged for allegedly running over girl in parking lot

(Mankato, MN) – An Eagle Lake man allegedly ran over a girl in a store parking lot of the River Hills Mall last month.

Gavin Sellner, 18, faces gross misdemeanor charges of criminal vehicular operation and failing to stop for an injury collision.

Sellner allegedly took off driving while the girl was holding on to the vehicle, dragging her under the truck after a dispute over money.

One witness told police she’d heard screaming and saw the truck stop when the girl fell, then heard it rev up before it ran over the girl.  A second witness said he’d heard a male inside the truck yell “F**k that bitch,” after running over the girl.  The witness ran to stop the truck, which fled the scene, according to the complaint.

Court documents say the girl suffered road rash to her hands, arms, and knees.
