Woman pinned by own vehicle in Oceanside

A woman in Oceanside recently suffered injuries after she was pinned by her own vehicle, a November 28 article in the Times of San Diego reported.

According to reports, authorities were notified at about 9:15 a.m. regarding an accident that took place on Mountain Vista. Officer Ignacio Lopez of the Oceanside Police told reports that a woman around 40 years old was pinned by her own vehicle after it inadvertently rolled out of place while she was closing the garage door. The vehicle reportedly rolled backward because of the sloping driveway. The woman was freed underneath her vehicle after responding officers lift her vehicle. Lopez confirmed that the woman underwent treatment at Tri-City Medical Center for non-life threatening injuries she sustained.
