Bucks County woman hospitalized after she was hit by her own car

HILLTOWN TWP., Pa. - A 72-year-old woman is in stable condition after she was run over by her own car.

Police said Barbara Fronheiser of Quakertown didn't put her car completely in park when she stopped at the Pet Shack parking lot in the 1600 block of Bethlehem Pike in Hilltown Twp.

The accident happened around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday. As Fronheiser got out of the car, it started to drift backwards, police said, and she fell under the car.

She suffered internal injuries to her chest and abdomen when the car's front left wheel ran over her, police said.

She was flown to Temple University Hospital where she was listed in stable condition in the intensive care unit.
