WILMINGTON, Del. (WPVI) -- A woman was injured after she accidentally struck while getting out of a car in Wilmington.

It happened around 4:00 p.m. Thursday in the 3300 block of Lancaster Pike.

Authorities say the woman in her 60s was being dropped off to a doctor's appointment by her grandson.

The woman was getting out of the car, but her grandson didn't realize she wasn't completely out yet.

He put the car in reverse and the passenger door knocked the woman to the ground.

She was taken to Christiana Hospital for head, back and shoulder injuries.

Delaware State Police are investigating.
