New Jersey: Woman Receives Parking Ticket After Run Over Herself | US News
A woman was run over by her own vehicle – but that didn’t stop police from issuing her a ticket.
Police responded to the intersection of Helms Mill and Dalton streets in Hackettstown, New Jersey, just before 7:30 p.m. Monday.
“An investigation determined that a 61-year-old woman from Hackettstown, NJ, got out of her 2014 Lincoln when she did not realize her vehicle was not parked,” the Hackettstown Police Department said.
“As she tried to stop the vehicle from rolling, she fell out of the vehicle and the vehicle rolled over the left side of her body.”
The woman’s vehicle continued to roll and struck a 2016 Ford parked on Helms Mill Road.
She sustained non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to Morristown Medical Center. Saint Claire’s paramedics responded to the scene.
The woman was later issued with a subpoena “for possession of an unregistered vehicle,” police said.
Her identity was not immediately released.
It’s not the first time a person has received a ticket in unusual circumstances.
In January, a man got his first-ever parking ticket outside of the house he’s lived in since 1981. David Wright, who lives near Goodison Park in Liverpool, has been fined for not extending his permit.
“They say my permit expired, but I think that happened before the season started, and I haven’t had tickets until now — in fact, I haven’t had tickets since I started living here in 1981,” Wright said .
“If it has been out of date all along, why am I only now being fined?
“Suddenly the Council is on my case and issuing a ticket for my car parked in front of my house at 7.30pm at night when it is pitch dark. Are you short of cash?’
