Kansas car theft victim run over by own car

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas car theft victim is out of the hospital after paying a heavy price for trying to recover the vehicle herself.

KFDI-FM reports (http://bit.ly/ZtP0hb ) the 31-year-old Wichita woman had her 2011 Dodge Avenger stolen on May 23. She went looking for the car the next afternoon and found it — with another woman in the driver’s seat.

The Sedgwick County sheriff’s office says the victim opened a door and told the driver to get out. The driver backed up, hit the victim and ran over her before driving off.

The victim spent several days in Wesley Medical Center with serious abdominal injuries. She was released Wednesday.

The Dodge Avenger is still missing, but investigators are looking for a 21-year-old woman described as the driver.
