FORT BEND COUNTY, Texas -- A tragic accident killed a mother of three Tuesday in Fort Bend County.

Investigators said she stepped out of her SUV at her home without realizing the vehicle was still in gear.

She tried to hit the brakes but the car rolled backwards, pinning her between the driver's side door and the brick column between the garage doors.

Her three young children were in the car. One of them called their father, and he called police.

The woman died by the time police showed up.
