A woman was trapped underneath a car this evening in the Walmart parking lot after a motorist struck a parked car, which hit the woman and an SUV.

Crews were called around 6:30 p.m. to the store at 3360 Pentagon Blvd. near Fairfield Commons.

"She was pinned under the car, but they were able to free her rather quickly, and actually extricate her," said Batallion Chief Bryon Betsinger of the Beavercreek Twp. Fire Department.

The woman, believed to be in her 20s, was talking to rescuers while they were freeing her, Betsinger said. She was taken to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton.

Witness George Franks of Fairborn said a woman driving a white Mercedes struck a curb, then struck a parked yellow car, pushing it into a red Chevrolet sport-utility vehicle. The woman was walking through parking lot between the two vehicles when the Mercedes slammed into them.

"At first, it looked like she was just accelerating real quick to get around the car in front of her. ... And then she kept accelerating faster and faster and I was like, 'that car is out of control!' "

The driver and passenger in the Mercedes were not injured, but a woman in the SUV was taken to Soin Medical Center in Beavercreek.

The names and conditions of those involved in the accident have not been released.

It's not clear whether charges will be filed.
