When Diana was rushed to a Minneapolis emergency room, her chest was covered with black tire marks. Her boyfriend had driven over her with his truck. In shock and still a little drunk, she tried to remember how she had landed on the road. They had been arguing. "He wanted me to get out, but I kept holding onto the door handle. Then he let go. He ran over my chest with the back wheels." And kept going. Diana dragged herself several miles to her grandmother's house. Later, Diana saw the injuries for the first time and said quietly, "Well, I guess I don't look too bad."
