She tried to jump onto a moving bus, but her hands slipped and she was mauled underneath the bus tyres.

The incident happened in Boundary Avenue in Clewer on Thursday, May 10.

The woman has not yet been formally identified and therefore her identity is withheld.

Five cars were badly damaged in the clash.

Residents from Clewer barricaded the entrances to the small suburb since early this week. They do not want their neighbours from Vosman working in Clewer.

Residents are urged to be careful when using roads leading in and out of Clewer.
