A 3-year-old Stamford girl suffered life-threatening injuries Tuesday morning when she was run over by a station wagon while her mother unloaded groceries from the car, according to police.
Police said the 32-year-old mother parked her Subaru Outback in front of their house on Pine Hill Avenue around 10:15 a.m. Monday. As the woman was helping her children out of the car and removing groceries, the Subaru rolled backward.
According to police, the station wagon ran over the driver's 3-year-old daughter, who was seriously hurt, before the woman managed to shift it into park, stopping the car.
Police said the driver's 20-month-old son was in the car at the time.
The injured 3-year-old was taken by ambulance to Stamford Hospital, then airlifted to Yale-New Haven Hospital for treatment, according to police. Her current condition is unknown, but police described her injuries as life threatening.
Police are investigating and ask anyone with information to call the Stamford Police Department Collision, Analysis and Reconstruction Squad at 203-977-4712.
