A summer road trip turned into a horror holiday for one Dunedin couple when a woman was pinned to a concrete pillar by a caravan being reversed by her husband.
Sergeant Matthew Lee, of Dunedin, said officers were called when a married couple arrived home from a caravan holiday to their Belford St, Waverley home about 7.15pm yesterday.
The 68-year-old husband was reversing the caravan while his 67-year-old wife was behind him guiding his driving, Sgt Lee said.
The wife was accidentally pinned between the caravan and a concrete pillar.

She was taken to Dunedin Hospital with suspected broken ribs and a possible pelvis fracture, Sgt Lee said.
A Hato Hone St John spokeswoman said an ambulance, a rapid response vehicle and a manager responded to assist the woman, who had serious injuries.
