Woman run over by own vehicle

A woman was taken by ambulance to a hospital Saturday afternoon after being run over by her own vehicle, according to emergency crews.

The woman, who was not named late Saturday, was reportedly in a driveway in Monte Rio at about 1 p.m. when she realized the parking brake was not activated. While trying to secure the brake, the woman was run over on her midsection, according to Monte Rio and Russian River fire crews.

She was taken by ambulance to an area near Summer Bridge in Monte Rio where a helicopter was able to land and pick her up.

The extent of her injuries was not known late Saturday.
