A York woman getting ready to take a golf lesson suffered minor injuries when she was run over by her own car Friday morning at York Golf and Tennis.

Mary-Jean Huntley, 73, had reached into her Town and Country minivan from outside the passenger side door to remove the keys, but mistakenly started the engine, said Sgt. Steve Spofford. Her arm also moved the shifting lever located on the dashboard near the ignition, and the car shifted into reverse, he said.

Huntley tried to get in the car to stop it, but fell and was run over, Spofford said.

The minivan stopped when it came to rest against a nearby pickup. Huntley did not appear to be seriously injured, Spofford said.
