LITCHFIELD — A Nottingham Lane man and his teenage daughter were injured while washing the family car in their driveway Sunday.

Police said Chester Fleger, 46, and his 13-year-old daughter, Tasha, were washing the family’s car when the father asked the girl to move the car to another spot in their driveway so they could wash another vehicle.

However, the girl, according to state Trooper Kyle Pelletier, began to back up the car while her father was still getting into the passenger seat.

“As he was getting in, she was in motion. He lost his footing and was run over by the vehicle,” Pelletier said. “The front tire ran over his back. The vehicle continued to roll down a hill and over an embankment, ending up on its side.”

Tasha Fleger was in the vehicle the entire time.

Both were taken to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston by ambulances following the late Sunday afternoon accident, with injuries that were not considered life-threatening.

Pelletier said no charges were filed, because the incident did not occur on a public way.
