Darlene Arwood was paying for her gas, and was the closest person to the door when the car hit her.

“If i would have made another step, it would have killed me,” the 64-year-old said. “I was scared because i didn’t know how bad it was. I couldn’t move my legs.”

Arwood was airlifted to a hospital for treatment.

She is now resting at home, but will need extensive physical therapy.

The 82-year old driver of the car says her gas pedal got stuck.
