So the other guy got the parking space after all

From Onlineathens police blotter today

Woman runs over herself in parking lot

A Watkinsville woman was injured during a parking mishap Wednesday morning on Sunset Drive when her own car rolled over her, Athens-Clarke police said.

The woman pulled into a space about 8:40 a.m. and realized she'd parked crooked, police said.

As she backed up to position the car better, another driver thought she was vacating the space, police said, and, as the woman leaned out her open door to say she wasn't leaving, she fell out and was run over by her own car, according to police.

The woman was taken to Athens Regional Medical Center with unspecified injuries, police said.

I do not know, the whole story was pasted here. It was a really bad day or her, though, huh. Just reminds me that there are a myriad of creative ways to become injured. I hope the paper does a follow up

Okay - so when I was a pre-teen we had a friend who shot himself in the back with a bow and arrow.

He was shooting stright into the sky and lost site of the arrow. He then ducked and the arrow impaled in his shoulder.

Try explaining that at the hospital.

Have a wonderful weekend.
