A 41-year-old woman has been hospitalized in critical condition Saturday after she was run over by her husband, police said.

The victim was on E. 16th St. near Ave. X in Sheepshead Bay at 5:30 p.m. Friday when she opened the door to a black Genesis SUV and began arguing with 34-year-old hubby Myroslav Iakymovych.

When Iakymovych started to drive off, the woman grabbed the open door to stop him, but lost the tug-of-war with the charging SUV.

She fell under the vehicle and was run over by the passenger rear side tire, witnesses told police.

EMS rushed her to NYU-Langone Hospital-Brooklyn, where she remained in critical condition Saturday.

Iakymovych, who lives about a mile from where he struck his wife, did not attempt to leave.

Cops charged him with drunk driving, assault, vehicular assault, reckless endangerment and reckless driving.

His arraignment in Brooklyn Criminal Court was pending Saturday.
