ANOTHER CVP SCOOP: A 5-year-old Fair Lawn girl came within inches of having her mother’s SUV crush her head after it rolled down their driveway, dragging the mother, before hitting a snowbank across the street.

Officer Gerard Graziano and Eric Eleschewich were driving past on patrol at 9:18 a.m. when they saw the 2010 Toyota Rav4 rolling down the Malcom Terrace driveway dragging the 39-year-old mother with it.

The woman’s 8-year-old and 5-year-old daughters were knocked to the ground by the open driver’s side door, and a tire “rolled right past the 5-year-old’s head,” Sgt. Brian Metzler told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

She had a minor head injury, Metzler said.

None of the three required medical attention, he said.

Police were trying to determine exactly what happened, the sergeant said.
