Roseville woman run over, killed by own vehicle

A Roseville woman died from injuries she suffered when she was run over by her own SUV.

Bernadette Ann Richardson, 54, was hurt last Friday morning, Aug. 21, on Rosemary Court, according to Officer Dee Dee Gunther with the Roseville Police Department. Police learned Richardson had driven to the court and parked her 1997 Ford Explorer at the curb on the level street when she got out, leaving the engine running. She was taking her bicycle out of the SUV's rear compartment when the Explorer rolled back, knocking her down and pinning her underneath the carriage.

Richardson was transported to Sutter Roseville Medical Center where she passed away Wednesday, Gunther said.

Police continue to investigate what happened.
