FEDERAL WAY, Wash. (AP) - A police spokeswoman in the south Seattle suburb of Federal Way says an unoccupied police vehicle rolled down a hill and crashed into a home Monday evening after the officer neglected to put it in park.

KOMO-TV reports (https://is.gd/SKPQJQ ) that spokeswoman Cathy Schrock says an officer responding to a car crash found a wrecked car with a female driver stuck inside. He got out to help her but forgot to put his own vehicle in park.

The officer was unable to stop his vehicle and it hit a home about 300 feet down the hill.

While the homeowners were not hurt, both car and house suffered significant damage.

Schrock says the officer helped free the woman from the wrecked car and she was taken to a hospital. She wasn’t seriously hurt.
