By Sergeant T. Schnitzius, Antioch Police Field Services Bureau
On Friday, December 28, 2012 at approximately 2:02 p.m., Antioch police were dispatched to a vehicle accident near 810 Wilbur Avenue. Upon arrival they found the victim had been run over by her own vehicle and was still pinned underneath.
The Contra Costa Fire Department (Con-Fire) responded and extricated the victim from the vehicle. The 60 year-old Antioch woman was pronounced deceased at the scene by Con-Fire shortly after extrication.
Our preliminary investigation indicates she was working under the vehicle when it slipped into gear and ran her over.
Anyone who may have witnessed the accident is encouraged to contact Officer Robert Solari at (925) 779-6900 Ext. 82372.
