Kathleen Ann Deaver, 69, accidentally left car in reverse

SAN ANTONIO – An elderly woman who accidentally left her vehicle in reverse while parking Sunday morning died after she was run over by her own truck, police said.

The Bexar County Medical Examiner's Office has identified the woman as 69-year-old Kathleen Ann Deaver. 

According to police, Deaver was parking on Kenton Crest around noon when the accident happened. Police said as she parked in the Northwest Side neighborhood, she inadvertently left her car in reverse.

"She was parking her vehicle, she began to get out of it -- evidently it was still in reverse, so the vehicle came back at an angle and she evidently got run over by one of the tires," a sergeant at the scene said.

The woman became caught under the front driver's side tire, police said.

She was taken to University Hospital with massive head trauma and later died.
