It happened in Burlington, Washington, when 73-year-old Mary Helen Boberg got out of the car at a red light to fix her car’s gas cap, but did not put the vehicle in park. When she attempted to get back in, she was dragged under the car and it rolled over her.

“It is nothing short of a miracle that she was able to get up,” Dr. Neil Roth told Inside Edition. “The only way that she was able to get up is if her lower leg, the tibia, was flush on the asphalt when it rolled over her leg.”
