      Father in court for alleged car attack on wife, toddler

      BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) A man was in court Tuesday for allegedly running over his estranged wife and their 20-month-old toddler three times.

      Traven Duane Buchholz, 29, is was charged with attempted murder, inflicting corporal injury on a spouse, willful cruelty to a child and assault with a deadly weapon.

      Police said the woman and child only suffered "moderate injuries" in the Feb. 6 incident on the Morrison Street, near Stockdale Highway and Real Road.

      Buchholz entered customary not guilty pleas during his arraignment Tuesday, and he's due back in court later this month.
