Paramedic Craig Brooks said the woman was incredibly lucky despite the unlucky chain of events.

"We were told that the 37-year-old thought she had put the handbrake on as she got out of her car, but it started to roll backwards down the driveway and knocked her over," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted him as saying.

"She said that the car ran over her lower abdomen and legs before crossing the street, hitting a fence on the other side of the road, bouncing back and running over her again," he added.

The woman was taken to the hospital in a serious condition with suspected internal bleeding.

"She had pain through her hips, her right leg and ankle. We had concerns that, while there were no major open wounds, she may have been bleeding internally," said Brooks.
