A woman was run over by her own car Wednesday afternoon. She was rushed to a hospital, but did not survive her injuries.
She's identified as 63-year-old Maria Lopez.
The accident happened at about 4:30 p.m. in the 27000 block of Preston Road in Pueblo County.
Pueblo County Sheriff's Office investigators say she had accidentally placed her vehicle’s transmission in neutral instead of park.
When the vehicle began to roll backwards, Lopez attempted to re-enter the vehicle. She lost her footing and the vehicle ran over her.
