Woman ran over by own vehicle, killed at Arlington home

At around 9:35am this morning, Arlington officers and firefighters responded to the 2800 block of Bent Tree Lane after a report that a woman had been run over by a vehicle.

When first responders arrived, they located a 65-year-old woman lying in the roadway. She was transported to a local hospital where she was later pronounced deceased from her injuries.

Through the course of their investigation, Arlington officers learned the vehicle belonged to the woman and she was driving it just prior to the accident. Witnesses told investigators she pulled into a driveway and exited the vehicle, then noticed it started rolling backward. She apparently tried to get back in the vehicle, fell, and was run over.

The Tarrant County ME’s Office has identified her as a resident of Grand Prairie.

The crash remains under investigation.
