A Phoenix woman is dead after apparently running herself over with her own vehicle in what police are describing as a tragic "accident."

Phoenix police say they found the body of 33-year-old Mendy E. Brooks pinned underneath her SUV in the middle of the road in a neighborhood near Campbell Drive and 51st Avenue about 3 a.m. today.

The investigation into the death is ongoing, but police seem convinced Brooks was the only person involved.

"There are no know witnesses, no evidence of another vehicle being involved or seen leaving the scene," Phoenix Sergeant Trent Crump tells New Times.

Crump went on to say "we do not know how it happened or why she was out of her car."

Brooks, an emergency room nurse in Phoenix, leaves behind four children ages 4-15.

Happened in my town.

We have had a number of bizarre accidents in past few years involving immigrants from down south.

- woman ran herself over in her own SUV

- guy chopped his own torso up with a power saw

- guy discovered the drawbacks of sleeping overnight in a giant, outdoor trash compactor

- guy mysteriously blew up while fueling his vehicle; not smoking or using cell phone

I wonder if actuarial tables have noticed a "tremor in the force" during the past 6 years. Some kind of increase in people accidentally ending their lives with heavy/power machinery after being in this country for a short time.

Man, I have read about some really freaky "accidental" deaths occurring around the area in the past half dozen year. I didn't just learn to read six years ago either. It is like Murphy just moved here and brought his Law in full force.

Individually, they do not seem to be completely out of the question but the burst of them in a short time has me kind of wondering if they are authentic accidents or if perhaps there needs to be more safety training lectures, PSAs, handouts, testing/licensing.

Nothing really detailed/complex, just stuff along the lines of, "How Not to Off Yourself In a Freak Accident".

This wasn't an accident. She has no reason to be there. It was in Maryvalle. For there to be "no witnesses " is crazy! If anyone knows that area then they know its not quiet around that time. She was found in front of Maryvalle hospital. And no one saw her? Please!! Think about it. The story doesn't add up.

No way you can run yourself over. The car is an automatic so why would she just jump out? Pretty sure she would put it in park before getting out. She's smarter then that

My daughter knew Mendy and is also an RN in the ER where Mendy worked and I used to think that would be the phone call I would get when she was dating and living with the jerk from HELL.  I finally asked her where she wanted to be buried.  Thanks goodness she is in a safe relationship now but I often wonder why I did not kill the jerk to protect her sooner.  I understand Mendy was in an abusive relationship or getting out of one and I hope the police do not just accept this as an accident. Like my friends sister whom shot herself two times with a shotgun pulling the trigger with her toe while her police husband watched.  That's right he got off free and clear. She has family and friends whom need to pursue this matter and not let the investigation go down as an accident. I also understand she was a beautiful person with beautiful red hair.

It is horrible.

Normally, when somebody is crushed beneath their own car, it was a faulty jack , failure to use jackstands, failure to use wheelblocks, etc. Misadventures of auto repair, in other words. This was obviously not that. How in the hell do you run over YOURSELF in the middle of the road?
