— A pregnant woman was rushed to the hospital Sunday after deputies say she was dragged and run over by her own vehicle.

The incident occurred just after 7 p.m. along Southwest Cedar Hills Boulevard near Walker Road.

Washington County deputies said two women were pushing the SUV to get it out of the road after it broke down.

Due to a downward slope, the car began to roll forward. Deputies said one of the women, who was pregnant, tried to jump into the car but instead it dragged her, knocked her down and ran over her chest area before it came to a stop.

She was taken to the hospital and deputies do not believe her injuries are life threatening.
