A Texas mom was crushed to death in front of her three children during a freak car accident outside her home, authorities said.
Ezdehar Husainat, 35, was killed when she became pinned between her SUV and the entrance to her garage around 3 p.m. Tuesday at her home in Sugar Land, south of Houston, local ABC reported
Her kids, ages 2, 5 and 7, were in the car at the time, and one of them used Husainat's cellphone to call for help.
Cops said Husainat was pulling into the driveway in her 2006 Toyota Sequoia when she got out of the driver's seat while the vehicle was still moving.
She apparently didn't realize the car was still in drive and tried to jump back in to hit the break but became pinned between the door and a column at the garage's entrance.
"It more or less crushed her between the garage door and the vehicle," Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office spokesman Bob Haenel told the Fort Bend Herald.
The 7-year-old in the backseat used her mother's cellphone to call their father, who called 911, local ABC reported.
Emergency crews arrived, and she was pronounced dead at the scene.
Husainat had picked up the three children from school before the accident occurred.
Husainat's three children were in the car at the time of the accident. She had just picked them up from school, authorities said.
A fourth child, 10, was still in school at the time of the accident.
Patsy Hayes described Husainat as a great neighbor.
"She was an excellent mother, and I saw that in her all the time," Hayes told the station. "Great family, great neighbors, and I'm going to miss her."
