Woman Flattened By Own Van While Fleeing Police

Given the frequency with which police chases are aired on television, it is a bit of a surprise that Baker County, Florida senior citizen Mary B. Davis didn't know the proper way to bail out of a vehicle. Maybe she was upset that her son had been arrested after a domestic dispute call.
