Man ran over woman with shopping cart at Somers supermarket checkout

‘Call it a case of shopping-cart rage.

State police said a 45-year-old Dutchess County man became enraged at a 72-year-old woman who was in front of him at the checkout line of the Super Stop & Shop on Route 6 last night and ran her over with his shopping cart.

James Curcio of Hillside Road, Poughquag, continued pushing the shopping cart out the door, despite not paying for the groceries, then beat a retreat in his car, police said.

The 72-year-old woman was treated at Hudson Valley Hospital Center in Cortlandt and released.’
