Woman hurt while trying to find her dog

(KAIR)--A woman was struck by her own vehicle while trying to retrieve her dog early Sunday afternoon in Atchison.

Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson told MSC News 49-year-old Kara Smith, of Goodland, Kansas, was driving in an alley, located in the 900 block of Atchison Street in search of her dog, which she spotted.

She jumped out of her vehicle, but did not put in in park, causing it to roll down the alley. When she tried to get back in, her leg was run over, with the vehicle continuing to roll until it hit a utility pole.

Smith was transported to the Atchison Hospital by Atchison County EMS for treatment, but suffered no broken bones.

Following her treatment for what Wilson said were abrasions and swelling, Smith was released.

The dog was later located, and returned to Smith, by members of her family.

The accident occurred shortly before 12:30.
