Woman run over inside her house

| 20/12/2009

(CNS): The family of a 68-year-old woman who is in hospital recovering after being run over in afreak accident say they are just thankful she is alive. Family members told CNS that the woman’s son accidentally pushed the gas pedal instead of the breaks as he was backing up to the house on Ryan’s Road, off Crew Road, George Town, at around 12:35 Friday morning, and his car smashed through the front door and ran into the family drawing room.

The woman was trapped under the car inside her home but her husband and son were unable to free her. The husband flagged down a passing car and the driver helped them lift the car up so she could move enough that they could pull her out.

Emergency services arrived and the woman was taken to the George Town Hospital, where she is recovering from aserious injury to her hand and a bruised lung. Her family said Saturday that she was sitting upright and talking to them but they were all shocked that the accident happened.

In another incident, the driver of a Honda Civic was taken to hospital with non-life threatening leg injuries following a two-car accident at around 7:40 pm Friday 18 December near the Bodden Town Primary School. Police said enquiries are ongoing.
