Police on Long Island say a woman has died in a bizarre accident when an unoccupied Jeep with the motor running pinned her against the wall of her garage.

The accident happened early Thursday in a home in Ronkonkoma.

Suffolk County police say 58-year-old Marjorie Domnitz was standing near her 1996 Jeep when she was struck by the vehicle, which had been left running and in gear.

Domnitz was found pinned between the Jeep and the garage’s rear wall. She was taken to the Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center, where she died.

The vehicle was impounded for a safety check and the investigation is continuing.
