A woman died on Sunday afternoon after she was caught underneath her own car which she had just parked, the police said.

The woman, aged 75 of Sliema, had just left her vehicle, a Toyota Aygo, which she parked in St. Publius Street at around 5pm.

For some reason, the car moved forward, with the woman ending up underneath it, as the car stopped against a wall.
