February 22nd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

A 61-year-old southwest Iowa woman has died under her car on her ice- and snow-slickened driveway. Mills County Sheriff’s Sgt. Kim Clark says the accident occurred a little before 1:45 p.m. Thursday.

Clark says Barbara Glaser was in her car when it got stuck on her steep driveway. Clark says Glaser put the vehicle in park, shut it off and got out. But the car started to slide down the driveway and struck Glaser. It knocked her down, hit an embankment and then rolled over on her. Glaser was pronounced dead at the scene, which is north of Pacific Junction.

Glaser was a 35-year employee of the Douglas County Department of Corrections in Omaha.
