ARVADA (KUSA) -- The Colorado State Patrol says a woman was crushed to death in her garage Wednesday afternoon.

It happened at a home in the 7600 block of Indiana Street in Arvada.

The victim has been identified as 54-year-old Karen Sanders.

Sanders was found by her family around 1:30 p.m. crushed between the frame of her garage and the door of her Dodge truck.

Troppers say the Dodge was backing out of the right side garage door of a two-car garage that was separated by framing, when Sanders got trapped between the driver side door of the Dodge and the framing between the two garage doors.

Deputies found the truck still in reverse. 

It is unclear at this time why the vehicle was in reverse while Sanders was outside of the vehicle.
