In a case of a good Samaritan deed gone horribly wrong, a 17 year old teen tried to help an 82-year old woman trying to park her car at the Holy Rosary Church in Portland. The woman, Mary Hart, accepted the help. Upon backing up the car the teen accidentally left the car in reverse (or did not release the brake) causing the car to move backwards. The car door was open which hit Hart as it rolled backwards. The injury sent Hart to the hospital for three weeks. Hart suffered brain injury and is currently living in a nursing home with severe dementia.
