A woman in her 70s was injured as a bus drove off while her clothing was stuck in its door.

The woman’s clothing reportedly became jammed in the door while she was getting off at a bus stop in Taean County, South Chungcheong Province, at 7:56 a.m. Sunday. The bus departed, not realizing that part of the woman’s clothing was caught in the door, and she was hit by its rear wheel.

She was taken to a hospital in Cheonan, South Chungcheong Province, for treatment.

The bus driver told police that he had moved off after everyone had alighted and that he did not know her clothing had been stuck. Police are seeking more details.
