Spring Hill woman killed when run over by her own car

NEW PORT RICHEY — An 85-year-old woman was run over and killed by her own car Sunday evening, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

Catherine Terrasi of Spring Hill was backing out of a driveway about 5 p.m. at 4976 Bostonian Loop when for some reason, the patrol said, she quickly accelerated while turning and fell out. She was not wearing a seat belt.

The front of the Mercury she was driving ran her over and then continued turning, driverless, in reverse until it ran into a house and caused minor damage, the patrol said.

The accident remained under investigation.
