LEBANON, OR (KPTV) -

A woman is dead after a cab driver accidentally backed over her in a parking lot in Lebanon Thursday night.

Lebanon police said they responded to a report of a pedestrian versus vehicle crash near 7th Street and Airport Road around 8:25 p.m.

Officers arrived to find two men attending to a 31-year-old woman in a parking lot. The woman appeared to have been run over by a car, according to police reports.

After further investigation, police determined that the car involved was a cab car from a Lebanon cab company.

Police said one of the men at the scene was the cab driver and the other man and woman were the cab’s passengers.

Police said the woman, who was intoxicated, had stepped out of the cab and had fallen behind the back tires. 

The driver, 43-year-old Brian Jackson of Lebanon, and the other male passenger  were unaware that the woman was behind the car. 

Jackson then accidentally ran over the woman as he began to leave the parking lot, according to investigators.   

The woman was taken to a nearby hospital with serious injuries where she later died, according to a press release.

The identities of the cab's passengers have not been released.

Police are still investigating this incident.
