Woman Run Over by Own Car in What Police Calls a Freak Accident

A Santa Rosa woman suffered scrapes and bruises when she was run over and trapped by her own car.

Police say it was a freak accident. The woman, who was not identified, was standing next to her car with the passenger door open on Friday. She was about to enter the car when it was knocked
into gear.

The driverless car rolled across the sidewalk and into a yard, knocking the woman down and dragging her along.

Emergency responders used air bags to lift the car off the woman.

She was shaken, but suffered only minor injuries. She was taken to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital for a checkup.
