Colorado Springs Police have released a statement detailing an accident that occurred in the parking lot of Noodles & Company near Barnes Road and Powers Blvd. A woman parking her full sized Dodge 4x4 pickup truck put her vehicle in reverse and exited the vehicle to pull the parking break handle which she could not do while seated in the truck. As she tried to employ the parking break the vehicle began to roll backward and over her. She became trapped under her front axle and emergency crews were called.
The Colorado Springs Fire Department responded with a heavy rescue crew who then employed a pneumatic device to lift the truck off her. Once freed the woman was transported to a local hospital in critical condition. A fire department spokesperson detailed that the wounds to the woman's leg were significant.
