Car kills driver by rolling backwards

A WOMAN was fatally injured after being run over in Castalla, Alicante, by her own car, after it rolled backwards over her when she left the vehicle.

The 38-year-old mother of two was with both her children when she was fatally injured. They were also in the car at the time, along with a young boy and a baby.

The police reported that the woman had put the handbrake on. But, for whatever reason, it became unhitched and the van began rolling back while she was behind it.

There were several medical professionals and police officers in the rural area as the annual “Festival of the Cows” was just starting at the time.

Paramedics arrived at the scene, shortly after the accident had been reported by a local farmer, but they were unable to save her life.
