Woman accused of running over boyfriend free on bail

The LaGrange woman accused of using her boyfriend's car to run him down on a Lombard sidewalk Saturday morning is free after posting 10 percent of the $200,000 bail set Tuesday.

According to court records, Elizabeth Donatelli, 20, posted bail late Tuesday.

Judge Richard Russo ordered that she be fitted with an alcohol monitoring bracelet and a GPS device. She also is prohibited from having contact with the victim and is expected to live with her father at his LaGrange home.

Donatelli is charged with aggravated domestic battery and aggravated battery in a public location. Additional charges are likely, authorities said, because the 22-year-old victim from Villa Park was critically injured in the attack.

Prosecutors said Donatelli and her boyfriend had been arguing over infidelity issues Saturday in a car he was driving. They said the victim eventually pulled the white, four-door Toyota sedan over at 5:19 a.m. Saturday near the intersection of Main and Ash streets in Lombard and began walking away.

Donatelli then jumped in the driver's seat and ran down the victim, prosecutors said.

The victim remains in critical condition at Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove, being treated for injuries to his head and legs.
