A woman was airlifted after a car rolled backwards crushing her against a house. Emergency crews responded to the 600 block of South Street in Aberdeen at 1:07 p.m. Monday with a report of a person pinned against the home by a vehicle.
The woman was working on the car in the backyard when it began to roll backwards down a slight hill toward the home. She ran behind the car in an attempt to stop it and was crushed between the car and the home.
The woman was still pinned when crews arrived, and a truck from the Town of Aberdeen was used to pull the car free.
The victim suffered traumatic injuries, and emergency crews immediately transported her to a waiting helicopter at the Aberdeen Fire Station on Hwy 211. The UNC helicopter airlifted her to a trauma center for further care.
South Street in Aberdeen was closed to traffic while emergency crews work.
