SEATTLE (AP) -- Seattle police are trying to determine how a woman was run over in an apartment complex parking lot early Thursday, but it appears to be an accident.

Police say she was extremely upset about something and was lying on the pavement when a car approached. Her boyfriend tried to alert the driver who was startled and ran over the woman, dragging her several feet.

Police found her trapped under the car and called a fire department crew to get her out. She's been taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle and is expected to recover.

Police say she was not fighting with her boyfriend and the two did not know the driver.
