Baylor medicine professor pinned, killed by own SUV in freak accident

Monday January 24, 2011: At 9:00AM Deanne Erdmann, assistant professor at Baylor College of Medicine was killed when she was pinned by her own SUV in the Texas Medical Center. Prof. Erdmann was exiting the parking area of the McGovern campus in the 2400 block of Holcombe. Erdmann exited her white Cadillac Escalade to swipe her access card but apparently failed to put the vehicle in park. The Cadillac then rolled forward, pinning her between the SUV and a metal pole near the access gate.  Sadly Professor Erdmann died at the scene. Houston Police Department Captain Roger Goralski said that there was only two inches between the SUV and the metal pole.
