GREENWICH — A man was trapped under an automobile Saturday morning in Old Greenwich, but escaped with minor injuries.

Police, firefighters and medics responded to the Gables, a residential complex, after a woman accidentally ran over a man on the ground there.

Police said it was unclear why the man was in a prone position when the driver exited a garage and struck him.

Firefighters used an inflatable device, an air-lifting bag, to pull the man from underneath the vehicle.

The man suffered facial injuries, and his condition was not life-threatening, according to authorities.
