It’s the second pizza-related runaway in Nelson this month.

It’s the second pizza-related runaway in Nelson this month.

The Nelson Police Department says on Friday, a pizza delivery woman was getting out of her vehicle on Fort Sheppard Drive, but failed to ensure it was properly parked.

The car began to roll, and the open door struck the woman, knocking her to the ground. The vehicle dragged her a short distance, then ran over her leg. It slid over a bank before coming to rest on some rocks.

Neighbours heard her yells for help and called an ambulance.

She was taken to hospital with minor injuries. The vehicle was heavily damaged.

A week earlier, a car parked on Kootenay Street rolled away and hit the patio at Leo’s Pizza.

As a result, police are reminding drivers to make sure they use their parking brakes and turn their wheels to prevent the vehicle from travelling too far if it begins to roll.

Pickup and motorbike collide

Police say a motorbike and a pickup truck collided Friday at the corner of Baker and Kootenay streets.

The driver of the pickup, a New Westminster resident, turned left onto Kootenay into the westbound motorcycle’s lane.

The biker, from Nelson, was taken to Kootenay Lake Hospital with what appeared to be minor injuries.

Total damage between the two vehicles was estimated at $1,000. The pickup driver was charged with failing to yield.

Rosemont home robbed

On Friday evening or Saturday morning, someone broke into a Rosemont garage and stole a number of tools, a drill, and a bag of motorcycle riding gear.

Police say a 2007 Yamaha YZ250 worth about $4,000 was also taken.

Cart stolen from school roof

RCMP say a four-wheel work cart was stolen from the roof of Brent Kennedy Elementary in South Slocan sometime between 5 p.m. Tuesday and 6 a.m. Wednesday.

The cart, which weighs about 200 lbs. and is worth about $800, is green with tar on it. Police are asking for tips.
