YUMA, Ariz. -- Authorities say an Arizona farmworker was fatally injured when she was run over by farm equipment after pushing another woman out of the way.

The Yuma County Sheriff's Office says 60-year-old Ana Maria Barrera-Bogarin of San Luis was walking with another worker during a break Tuesday when they realized that a tractor pulling a produce trailer was backing up toward them.

According to the Yuma Sun, the women tried to run out of the way before Barrera-Bogarin pushed the other woman out from behind the trailer.

However, she was knocked to the ground by the trailer and run over.

Barrera-Bogarin was pronounced dead at a Yuma hospital.
