Just released 911 calls reveal new details about an incident that ended with three people being struck by a Jeep.

According to the crash report, John Edward Webber hit Asher Boehm, Dilton Hulse and Emily Robinson with his 2014 Jeep Wrangler on Tuesday morning.

"This guy just ran over this kid up here," one 911 caller described. "And, right now, it looks like his toe is about to come off."

Police say the incident started when Webber approached Boehm, Hulse and Robinson, who were picking flowers near Webber's home early Tuesday morning.

An argument started, which, police say, resulted in Webber being knocked to the ground, injuring his head.

Police say the group of three then left the area. It's after that, they say, Webber got in his Jeep to look for the group.

"Sir, I've just been attacked by three people," a 911 caller, who identified himself as John Webber, said. "I got one running. They're heading up the *expletive* backroad, right now."

According to the crash report, Webber was traveling east on Hilliard Avenue, near Clingman, "crossed left of center across two westbound lanes" onto the sidewalk, then stuck the three people.

"There's a Jeep pulled up on the sidewalk, and there's a bunch of them fighting down here," another caller described to 911 operators. "They're cussing and screaming and fighting each other. I don't know what's going on."

Family members told News 13 on Wednesday that the three people who were hit have injuries to their legs, feet and back, and one of the victims had to have a toe amputated. Police were not able to confirm the amputation.

According to warrants, Webber is facing three counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to inflict serious injury.

Police say Boehm was charged with misdemeanor assault inflicting serious injury.
