Van came out of park, rolling over me and breaking my leg.

(2013 Dodge Grand Caravan)
in Stella Niagara, NY on June 14, 2014
my Caravan was idling in park. I tripped and leaned on the van for support near the trunk area. I couldn't stop it and I was knocked down and the van rolled over my leg. The shop reports no problems with the braking system. It may be 2014 model.

Was the 'parking brake' engaged? Otherwise maybe the transmission or axles? Parking pawl or stripped splines/defective axle.
