Posted on December 3, 2012

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — A school bus driver sustained minor injuries last week when her car rolled back and pinned her against her school bus, Knoxville News Sentinel reports.

The accident occurred Thursday afternoon in a parking lot for Knox County school buses. A bystander who was in the parking lot at the time told the news source that driver Pat Williams got out of her car to warm up her bus.

A spokesman for the Knoxville Police Department added that Williams thought she left her car in park, but it was in gear, and when she walked behind her vehicle, it rolled, pinning her between the vehicle and the bus.
