El Paso, tx — A woman was dragged by her own vehicle and 2 young children were inside the car at the time. Police say the woman was at a birthday party with a 6 and 10 year old in the car. They say it all happened last night when she parked at the top of a hill and coultn't take the emergency brake off. The driver proceeded to put the car in neutral and turned the key. For some reason the woman stood outside of her car when it started rolling backwards and dragged the woman.
The car went airborne then landed into the front yard. The woman and the children were not seriously injured.
Police impounded her car because the woman does not have car insurance. The woman's car also landed on top of an electrical box which knocked out power to about 9 homes in the neighborhood.
