Ballyforemort - Ireland.
A Father and Son team were collecting a debt from a minor criminal of 200 euros. Driving in a jeep to the debtors home, as they arrived at the home, the Son saw the debtor and quickly jumped out of the jeep with an iron bar in hand.
Unbeknown to the Son, the debtor was carrying a knife. A violent struggle followed resulting in the Son with the iron bar being stabbed numerous times. In the struggle both men fell to the ground. In the confusion that follows, the Father somehow drove over his son. The resulting injuries were a broken pelvis and a crushed femur. His leg injury was so serious it may have to be amputated.
It likely that two of the three men involved will face charges.
Note that those involved were not licensed collectors.
