Woman Attempts to enter Runaway Car-Runs Over Herself

A Grass Valley Woman was taken by Air ambulance to Sutter Roseville Medical Center early Thursday morning after she was run over by her own car.  CHP Officer Marc Morrison says   the woman who lives near Virginia Way east of Heirs Road had put her garbage cans into her 2002 Nissan Quest vehicle and drove them down to the roadside in preparation for pickup by Waste Management.

“The parking brake had not been set and she possibly left it in neutral and unfortunately, like many of us would react, she tried to re-enter the car while it was still moving to try and get it to stop and in doing so, the driver door struck her and knocked her to the ground and partially under the front wheels of the vehicle.”

The woman received moderate injuries to her legs. Alcohol was not a factor in the collision. Officer Morrison recommends people not attempt to jump back into a moving vehicle, “it usually ends up very poorly.”
