Three Ways to Get Run Over by a Car
Backed Over by a Good Samaritan
A 62-year-old lady was lying in the road in the middle of the night. A man, driving by in a car, saw her as he drove by. He stopped and backed up to render assistance. He was so excited that, as he did so, he accidently ran her over. One witness said that after he realized what he had done, he freaked out even more and drove forward, driving over her again. The patient did not remember any of this. It was not clear why she was lying in the street at 2:00 in the morning. She suffered extensive injuries requiring hospital admission and surgery.
Remember to Put the Car in Park
A 24 year-old lady was driving her car in reverse in the driveway. She looked in the rear view mirror and saw her two children playing behind the car. She freaked out and jumped out of the car in an effort to protect them from the moving car. Unfortunately, she did so without putting the car in park. The open car door immediately knocked her down. The car continued in reverse and the open door knocked over both of the children before coming to a stop across the street. Fortunately, none was run over by the car. The driver suffered only a badly bruised knee and the children were all unhurt.
Run Over Twice by Same Car or Could This Really Have Happened?
A two-and-one-half-year-old boy came in by ambulance. His mother said she saw her car slip out of gear with no one in it. The car was parked on an incline and rolled down the hill, running over her child who was playing behind it. The car then went up an opposing hill where it stalled out then rolled back over the child again, continuing back up the hill on which it started. She said she was able to move the child before the car came back down the hill when it would have run over him a third time. He suffered multiple severe injuries.

That 2.5 yo boy getting run over story is a bit shady to me… I almost wish CPS was called for questioning.
