Antioch woman run over, killed by her own car on Friday

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.

    The Antioch police always get it wrong, don’t they (not even sure how they came up with the scenario that “she was working on her car”)!?!…the real truth is she got out of her truck to open the gate to the yard…the truck began to rolling the street…she tried to stop the truck from rolling out into on coming traffic & it drug her under the truck, killing her…she could have possibly lived if the the Antioch police, firemen or paramedics would have got there sooner!!!
