Woman Seriously Injured By Car In Rubicon

(Rubicon) A woman was seriously injured when she was run over by her own vehicle Wednesday night in the town of Rubicon. The Dodge County Sheriff’s Department says the 67-year-old was attempting to secure an infant in a child safety seat around 9pm when the accident occurred. The preliminary investigation shows that the vehicle had been left in neutral and began rolling backwards. The woman attempted to stop the reversing car but was pushed to the ground and was rolled over, causing serious injuries to her upper body. She was transported by Flight for Life to an area hospital for treatment. The incident occurred on private property and neither alcohol nor drugs are believed to be a factor. Sheriff Dale Schmidt says due to the nature of the injuries the victim’s name is currently being withheld.
