CORNWALL, Ontario – A 74-year-old woman was run over by her own vehicle in the city's east end at around 1 p.m.
Michael Lascelle stands beside the vehicle that ran his grandmother over.
The woman was transported to the hospital, and police on the scene said she suffered serious injuries.
A section of Walton Street between Carleton and Belmont streets was shut down for two hours.
The accident has left the victim's family shaken, waiting for word on her condition.
Cornwall's Michael Lascelle, 19, was in a panic, when he heard the yells and cries of his family. As he rushed out the door, his grandmother was lying on the ground, yelling in pain, as his mother parked the runaway vehicle.
"She was getting ready to go home with her grandson," said Lascelle. "She thought she put the car in park, but it started to move, with the baby still inside it. She tried to stop (the car), but it rolled over her."
Lascelle said his grandmother had a concussion, and was bleeding from her wrist.
"It's really sad," he said.
Lascelle said he and his family are awaiting word on whether his grandmother will have to be transported to an Ottawa hospital for further treatment.
"My mother was yelling and screaming. I took my nephew inside and waited for his mother," he said.
First-responders arrived in minutes, said Lascelle.
The vehicle involved in the accident was a black Chrysler Intrepid.
