MANKATO – A Lake Crystal woman is recovering after being run over by her own vehicle.
Radio station KTOE-AM reports that Diane Sandstrom, 64, was backing out of her driveway Friday when she realized she forgot something inside the house. She told authorities that as she got out of her minivan, it was still in gear and rolled backward. It knocked her down and rolled over her chest. She was able to make it back into her house to call for help.
The van continued backing up in a circular direction, eventually hitting the garage.
Lake Crystal Fire Chief Jeff Becker says Sandstrom was taken to a Mankato hospital where she was in stable condition.
