Firefighters responding to a call for help Tuesday morning found the woman trapped under her car. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police said she likely returned home from work around midnight. They think she parked her car on top of the steep driveway and it started rolling backward. She tried to stop the car and was pinned underneath.
Her grandmother found her under the car and called police.
