Woman in serious condition after being run over by own car

A woman has been seriously injured following a single-vehicle crash in a driveway at Bossley Park last night.

About 9.50pm (Sunday 30 August 2015), emergency services were called to a house on Bossley Road after being alerted by a neighbour.

The neighbour discovered the car with the engine running and the driver’s side of the car wedged against a pole in the driveway.


The 25-year-old female driver of the Holden Astra was unconscious and her head was pinned by the open door of her car.

The neighbour removed the woman from the car and contacted emergency services before commencing CPR.

The woman was transported by NSW Ambulance Paramedics to Liverpool Hospital where she remains in a serious condition.

Police from Fairfield Local Area Command were also in attendance.

Initial investigations suggest the incident was due to misadventure when the woman exited her vehicle to open a gate and her manual transmission vehicle was in-gear and accelerated.
