A Cocoa Beach, Florida woman said a cat jumped into her car and attacked her, and as she was trying to escape the feisty feline, she was run over by her own vehicle as it rolled in reverse, according to Florida Today.

The woman, who officials from the Florida Highway Patrol say is recovering from her injuries, said she had left her car parked in front of a house on Friday night when the cat jumped into the car and attacked her.

In an attempt to escape from the angry kitty, the woman exited the vehicle, forgetting that she had shifted it into reverse.

Troopers said the car then rolled over the woman, leaving her with critical injuries. She was transported to the hospital via a medical helicopter.

Florida Highway Patrol's Lieutenant Channing Taylor said, "It's very unusual to have an animal leap into a car and bite somebody like this and then get run over by your own car. The car rolled into the street and did strike a parked vehicle as well."
