MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - Memphis police are searching for man they say intentionally ran over his girlfriend with his car, and then drove off.

Investigators said officers were initially called to the Highland Chateau Apartments just before 7:00 a.m. Monday about a man with a weapon.  But when officers arrived, the man was gone. Instead, they found a severely injured woman laying in the parking lot.

The woman, who was run over by a car, was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

According to police, the woman's boyfriend intentionally hit her with his car after argument, and then kept driving.  

The victim is expected to survive.  Meanwhile, police are searching for her boyfriend, but have declined to release his name or a photograph.
