Seattle carjacking victim run over by own car

A Wallingford woman is recovering after she was run over with her own car last night during a carjacking, Seattle police said.

The victim, who was in the process of moving, was packing up her car near Second Avenue Northeast and Northeast 42nd Street around 8:40 p.m. when she heard someone start the engine, according to police. The victim banged on the hood of her car and yelled at the woman who had climbed into her car and was driving away.

The victim grabbed the car’s hood and tried to hold on, but the suspect sped up and drove over the victim’s leg as she fell from the hood, police said.

Officers responded but weren’t able to find the thief or the victim’s car, a blue 2013 Subaru with Alaska license plates. Police say the car was filled with electronics, credit cards, salmon and moose meat.

The victim was taken to UW Medical Center for treatment.
