AUBURN — Police say a Maine man acquitted of charges of causing a passenger’s death during a street race was run over at a carnival at Great Falls Plaza in Auburn.

Police say 21-year-old Kyle Karkos of Lewiston was struck Wednesday night by a car operated by William Panzino of Auburn, who has been charged with aggravated assault. Karkos was treated at a hospital; Panzino was jailed pending an arraignment Friday.

Police say Karkos was involved in a fight with one of Panzino’s friends earlier in the evening.

Karkos’ mother, Kelley Karkos, told the Sun Journal newspaper the altercation began with harassment over the 2006 crash that killed Kenny Jellison. Karkos was 17 at the time.
