MELBOURNE, Australia – An Australian woman has been rushed to hospital after being run over by her own car. Twice.
Paramedic Craig Brooks says the woman forgot to pull the hand brake before getting out of the car and that it rolled down her driveway and knocked her down, leaving her unable to move.
He said on Thursday that the woman told paramedics "that the car ran over her lower abdomen and legs before crossing the street, hitting a fence on the other side of the road, bouncing back and running over her again."
The woman from the southern city of Melbourne was taken to hospital in a serious condition with suspected internal bleeding.
The incident happened on Wednesday.
