Police say the incident involved four women in the area of the Victoria Diner.

Police say that victim is a 29-year-old woman. She was rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries and is said to be in critical condition after being dragged by a vehicle.

Smith has been charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and OUI causing serious bodily injury.
