A 69-year-old woman was injured Tuesday afternoon, May 29, in downtown Prescott after her car rolled over her legs, according to Prescott Police Department (PPD) officials.

The woman reported to PPD officers she was leaving the Post Office off of Goodwin Street and was backing out of a parking space there when the accident occurred.

While backing out, she realized she had dropped a receipt outside of her car and opened the car door to lean out and retrieve it, said PPD Deputy Chief Amy Bonney. As she leaned out, she slipped and fell to the asphalt. The car continued to reverse and ran over her legs.

The woman was transported to the Yavapai Regional Medical Center in stable condition, Bonney said. Her current condition is unknown.
