A WOMAN could hear her “bones crunching” when her evil ex-boyfriend drove over her four times in his pick-up truck.
San Juanita Herrera, 41, was run over by Rogelio Alberto Guardado, 72, while he was driving a 2000 grey Nissan Frontier, after she saw him slashing her tires in south-east Houston, Texas.
After running over her in a residential car park, he then drove around to run over her a second time.
Guardado, who was 69 at the time, drove over her a total of four times before leaving on September 11, 2016 at around 11pm, according to a police report.
Herrera suffered life threatening injuries but was able to tell the cops she thought Guardado had committed the crime.
She had a shattered pelvis, two broken legs, broken ribs, head trauma as well as other injuries and spent two months in hospital.

The victim then spent two years in a wheelchair as she recovered and was able to give evidence against him.
Reports at the time said the vehicle had “Rogelio’s Painting” on the side.
Police confronted Guardado, who was her former employer, the following day but denied being involved and said he had not loaned the truck out.
Herrera’s son, Michael Hernandez, said he didn’t know what his mum was doing outside on the day as she rarely went outside after 7pm.
In 2016 he said: “She hates being alone. She hates the dark and keeps to herself.”
Cops arrested Guardado eight days after the incident and was held on £24,000 ($30,000) bond, according to ABC 13.
Assistant District Attorney Nicci Campbell said: “She told about how this was someone she loved, someone she trusted and how bad things got after they broke up.
“She told about hearing her bones being crushed under the tires and seeing her own blood on the ground. Her body was essentially severed in half.”

District Attorney Kim Ogg said: “He tried to kill her and she wouldn’t die.
“Domestic violence fuels our murder rate. We are lucky she was strong enough to survive this horror.”
Guardado was sentenced to 20 years in prison at his trial last week after pleading guilty in a deal and must serve at least ten years before he is eligible for parole.
