A woman lost a leg when she was crushed beneath the wheels of her husband's tentonne steamroller in an horrific bank holiday tragedy.
Debbie Marsh, aged 41, was trying to fix a wooden braking block to one of the giant wheels when the machine lurched forward, crushing her left leg.
She was flown to Selly Oak Hospital by air ambulance but doctors could not save the limb.
Mrs Marsh, who runs a steamroller club with her husband David, was a passenger on board the 68-yearold machine. The driver, a 32-year-old man from Coventry who owns the roller with Mr Marsh, was not hurt.
The accident happened in Spring Lane, near Hockley Heath, Solihull, on Monday afternoon.
Mr Marsh was rushed to his wife's bedside by police who called at the couple's home in Waverley Road, Rugby, at about 4pm.
A Warwickshire Police spokeswoman told how Mrs Marsh was crushed by the giant wheels.
" The roller is steampowered and so needs to be stoked up. The pair stopped and the lady was fitting a block to a wheel to act as a brake when it rolled forward over her foot and then her leg," she said.
"The road has a slight incline and her leg was crushed under the rear vehicle. We will need to examine the vehicle to establish if there is any mechanical fault but at the minute we are treating it as an accident.
"The road would have been fairly busy around that time so we would appeal for any witnesses to the accident to come forward."
The roller was being driven from a yard in Hockley Heath, where it was being stored.
