A pregnant woman was apparently run over by her own pickup on Thursday morning, Aug. 8, according to the Chetek Police Department. 

The truck, which had some sort of mechanical issue, rolled backwards, knocking the woman down, injuring her.

She was flown by Life Link III to Regions Hospital, in St. Paul, Minn., according flight data from Flightradar24.com.
