In a bizarre turn of events, a 61-year-old woman from Hackettstown, New Jersey found herself being run over by her own vehicle, only to be issued a ticket by the cops later on.

How Did This Happen?

The incident occurred at the intersection of Helms Mill and Dalton roads around 7.30 pm on a Monday. Upon investigation, it was discovered that the woman had failed to notice that her 2014 Lincoln was not in park mode as she stepped out of it.

In an attempt to halt its progress, she fell over and the vehicle ended up rolling over her left side. It continued rolling until it collided with a 2016 Ford parked on Helms Mill Road.

How Bad Was She Hurt?

Thankfully, the woman's injuries were not life-threatening and she was transported to Morristown Medical Center for treatment by Saint Claire's Paramedics.

In a somewhat perplexing move, the woman was handed a summons by the police for driving an unregistered vehicle, despite the fact that she was run over by her own car. The police did not immediately reveal her identity.

Another Unusual Event

This peculiar situation is not the first time someone has received a ticket in an unusual circumstance.

David Wright, a long-time resident near Goodison Park in Liverpool, was shocked to receive his first-ever parking ticket outside the home he had lived at since 1981, for failing to renew his permit.

"They are saying that my permit has run out, but I think that happened before the start of the season and I haven’t had any tickets before now – in fact, I haven’t had any tickets since I started living here in 1981," Wright said.

"If it has been out of date all that time, why am I only being fined now?"

"All of a sudden the council is on my case and ticketing my car, parked outside my house at 7.30 pm at night when it is pitch black. Are they short of funds?"
