Woman injured after being pinned by her own car

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 38-year-old woman was struck by her own truck when she attempted to stop it from rolling out the driveway of her Linda Vista home, San Diego police said Tuesday.

The woman started her 1996 manual transmission Dodge pickup to let it warm up about 6:40 a.m. Monday, then went back in her house in the 7000 block of Linda Vista Road, police said. She looked outside and saw the truck rolling out of the driveway into the street and ran outside to stop it, police said.

The truck knocked the woman down and its left front tire ran over her right shoulder, pinning her down, police said.

A passer-by ran to help the woman and drove the truck off her, police said. The woman was taken to a hospital to be treated for collapsed lungs, but police do not believe her injuries are life-threatening.
