Shawnee police on Thursday morning updated information originally released involving a Wednesday night accident where a woman was hit by her own pickup while trying to retrieve her dog around Harrison and Ridgewood streets.

Shawnee Police Cpl. Vivian Lozano said police originally had information that the woman’s dog had jumped out of her vehicle, but she instead was out looking for her dog and the accident occurred when she spotted the dog and tried to retrieve it.

Lozano said the woman, 84, was driving a Ford pickup eastbound on Ridgewood Street looking for her dog when she noticed it while approaching the Harrison Street stop sign. Lozano said the woman pulled over and got out of the truck, but when she exited it, the pickup began to roll forward.

That’s when Lozano said the woman attempted to jump back into the vehicle to stop it; she fell and was run over during that time. The pickup rolled into traffic on Harrison Street before stopping.

Many emergency vehicles were on the scene just before 9 p.m. A Medi Flight helicopter landed on the northwest corner of Ridgewood and Harrison, which is across the street from Shawnee Bowl, she said.

The woman was transported to OU Medical Center with unspecified injuries. The woman’s name was not yet being released by police Thursday morning, Lozano said, and there was no updated word on her condition.

Some comments circulating on Facebook indicate someone stopped to help the woman while another was able to retrieve her dog, but no official information from the report has been released.

Watch for updates.
