According to the Palm Beach (Fla.) Post, an 82-year-old Florida woman was hospitalized in serious but stable condition after she was run over by her own car Thursday when she was collecting her mail.

The car shifted into reverse when the woman got out, and she was knocked down by the car's open door and dragged for 30 feet, according to the Palm Beach Post report. A firefighter suffered minor injuries while attempted to stop the car, which was going in backwards circles, according to the report.
