An unusual accident on Austin Way Sunday morning injured a Hopkinsville woman.
Hopkinsville Police were first called to the area around 10 am after 60-year old Frances Bridges of Hopkinsville had driven her vehicle into a ditch. Officers assisted Ms. Bridges in getting a wrecker to the scene to remove it from the ditch.
Officers were called back to the scene soon after when Ms. Bridges ran into the ditch again when she thought the vehicle was in drive, but was actually in reverse. She also reportedly attempted to get out of the car as it started rolling backward and was struck by the door and then ran over by front driver's side tire.
She was taken by ambulance to Jennie Stuart Medical Center for non-life-threatening injuries.
