Woman pinned under auto suffers serious injuries

Woman pinned under auto suffers serious injuries”

A 73-year-old Nanaimo woman is fighting for her life after she was pinned under her vehicle and dragged down the length of her driveway Thursday night.

The accident occurred on Monterey Drive near Cheyenne Place at about 8 p.m.

He said police talked to witnesses but don't know how the incident occurred. He then used a auto jack to lift the vehicle off of the woman and pulled the woman out from underneath it.

The woman, who has not been identified, was treated at the scene by firefighters and paramedics before being taken to hospital and then transferred to another facility in Victoria.

The woman's family has been notified and an RCMP victim services unit has been called in to assist those involved.

After speaking with the neighbour, officers determined the vehicle was not turned on at the time, so police are still unsure how the woman ended up pinned underneath and what caused the auto to back down the driveway.

Due to the severity of the woman's injuries, an RCMP Traffic Collision reconstructionist went to the scene.
