Pregnant woman hit, dragged by her own vehicle
A pregnant woman was hit and dragged by her own vehicle Sunday evening after it broke down in Cedar Hills.
Washington County Sheriff's Office deputies responded around 7 p.m. to multiple reports of a crash in the 2300 block of Southwest Cedar Hills Boulevard. When deputies arrived, they found a 2001 Mazda Tribute hanging over a retaining wall and a woman on the ground.
Two women and several children had been in the vehicle when it became disabled on Cedar Hills Boulevard. The women began pushing the vehicle to get it out of the roadway. Due to a downward slope, the car began rolling forward. One of the women, who was pregnant, tried to jump in the car to control it. The vehicle dragged her, knocked her over and eventually ran over her chest area before it came to a stop.
She was taken to a local hospital. She does not appear to have suffered any life-threatening injuries. Further details have not yet been released.
