Mother struck, dragged by SUV in Chelmsford after child puts vehicle in reverse A Chelmsford mother was struck and dragged by her own vehicle Sunday after her child apparently put the SUV into reverse by accident while the mother was loading the vehicle, officials said. Police were called to a house on North Road for a report of a pedestrian struck by a vehicle. Upon arrival, officers found a woman suffering from traumatic injuries. Police said the woman's 9-year-old son accidentally shifted the SUV into reverse. The mother, who was standing at the open driver's side front door, got caught inside the door and tried to dive for the brake pedal, but was pinned and then run over by the vehicle.

California wildlife officials say a mountain lion is likely the animal that attacked and injured a 4-year-old boy Monday in a wilderness park near San Diego .

The boy was possibly attacked by a mountain lion , officials say. Wildlife officers were dispatched to a trailhead at the preserve around 2:30 p.m. Monday after San Diego Fire-Rescue personnel treated the child for an injury consistent with a mountain lion attack .

The city's fire department also called the California Department of Fish and Wildlife to the scene.

A call to Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve on Tuesday led to a recording that said the trails there were closed "due to a wildlife issue."

People who live near the trails said they often see signs posted warning of wild cats, according to NBC San Diego. Still, residents were spooked.

"We walk in this canyon all the time, so it is a bit scary that you can get attacked like that," Marcela Reices said.
