August 22, 2018

STAMFORD-A city woman got her legs run over by her husband’s car in a freak accident in Westover Monday afternoon.

Sgt. Robert Shawinsky said a man was dropping some blueprints off at a home on Nathan Hale Drive at 4:45 p.m. when he got out of the car without setting the parking brake or putting the vehicle in park.

The car began rolling backwards and the man’s wife, who was sitting in the passenger seat panicked. The woman tried to get out of the car and while doing so her legs got trapped under the car. The vehicle then rolled over both her legs, Shawinksy said.

The woman was rushed to Stamford Hospital with non life threatening injuries.
