Man accidentally runs over his wife on beach

A 57-year-old woman in Daytona Beach Shores was seriously injured Monday when she was run over and pinned underneath her own car after it became stuck in the sand.

Authorities said Lena Patitucci and her husband were trying to back into a parking spot on the beach when their car became stuck in the sand.

Witnesses said Patitucci exited the vehicle and began to attempt to rock the car free while her husband, Angelo, gave the car gas. When the car broke free, it drove right on top of her, the report said.

Emergency crews and Volusia County beach patrol members used special equipment to lift the vehicle and free Patitucci. The woman was transported to Halifax Medical Condition in serious but stable condition. Article here.
