    All three happened. The video clearly shows that the woman was under the car.

    When you say pedestrians always have the right of way, you're saying pedestrians can go wherever they want and it's never a crime. That's not true. In the state this occurred in those pedestrians were jaywalking and obstructing traffic. Those pedestrians did not have the right of way.
    Oh my God the semantics in this thread. Okay, unlike your buddy who won't admit that you don't have to be physically run over by tires to say you've been run over, I'll concede this point. Though I will stand by my guns that it's not okay to intentionally run over pedestrians.

    Please explain how a stopped car is running someone over.

    I already did! Look above. It says to collide with, knock down, and often drive over. From Merriam Webster.

    It's clearly defined above. How did she get under the car? Did she crawl under it?

    If you want to say she was hit by the car, sure, go ahead. But saying she was run over is just as acceptable.
    She got knocked down and her leg went under as she fell, the car did not run her over.

    I didn't say the stopped car was running over someone

    I said the stopped car had run over someone.

    That's the definition of the word. It's getting embarrassing for you at this point.

    Umm, when a car runs over someone, it's usually because the car knocked them down and they fell under the car.

    That's what "run over" usually means.
