(Scroll down for video) A woman was seen on video being run over by her own car.
The woman of Washington, who was hit by her own car, survived and walked away unharmed.
The incident was recorded on the dash camera of David Alger, who was the driver behind her. The accident occurred close the Costco in Burlington.
While the woman waited in her car at a red light, another driver stopped to point out that her gas cap was unscrewed.
The woman got out and walked to the side of the car. She suddenly realized that the car was moving so she walked back and tried to grab the steering wheel, but she fell.
She was dragged under the tire, which then went over both of her legs.
Alger ran out of his car to help the woman. He said that he was surprised when the woman got up and walked to the side of the road.
Another witness got out of her car and attempted to stop the runaway vehicle. She was unsuccessful, but the car came to complete stop after crashing into a tree.
After police and paramedics checked the woman, she drove away in her own vehicle.
