The freak accident happened as Isabel Huerta was headed to work and stopped her car in front of a school.
Huerta got out of her PT Cruiser but forgot to take it out of gear. When she fell down behind the car, it backed over her.
Police in San Antonio say the 67 year old woman’s family thinks she may have been feeling sick and got out of the car without thinking about putting it in gear.
A nurse passing the scene stopped to help as did several others who quickly called 911.
Firefighters quickly lifted the car with a jack and delivered CPR but it was too late, Huerta died in the street.
