A woman has died after her car, with two young children inside, rolled back onto her in the driveway of a home in Melbourne this afternoon.
The tragic accident occurred out the front of a house in Craigieburn just after 2.30pm.
Police say it’s understood a 32-year-old woman was reversing out of the driveway when she is believed to have struck a water meter and got out to investigate.
During this time, the car rolled backwards onto her and she died at the scene.
Victoria police said two young children, aged seven-years-old and four-years-old, were in the car at the time, however they escaped unharmed.
The 7-year-old boy got out of the car and ran inside and rang his dad.
Investigations into the crash are ongoing.
RIP. Our thoughts are with the children and extended family.
