Oprah Winfrey was horrified when the driver of her huge SUV ran over a woman’s foot, narrowly avoiding crushing her ankle.
The concerned talk show queen jumped into action when the driver of her Escalade accidentally rolled over the toes of Lori Geller Bender, an attractive, blond mother of two, who was arriving at hot Miami restaurant Prime 112.
Bender, 44, tells us that her husband, Kevin, banged on the window of the SUV and screamed at the driver to reverse off her toes, which became trapped under one of the vehicle’s wheels.
Bender, who lives in Parkland, Fla., told Page Six of Saturday night’s incident, “We were crossing the street to arrive at the restaurant, and there were a lot of cameras. I could see a big crowd of security guards, and as soon as Oprah got into the car, it pulled out from the curb, and a wheel went over my foot. I was wearing heels, my toe was trapped under the wheel and I fell to the ground, hitting my coccyx and my head.
“My husband was banging on the window, shouting for the driver to pull back. I am lucky because if the SUV had gone slightly further forward it would have crushed my whole ankle.
“The driver reversed off my foot and Oprah jumped out. She couldn’t have been nicer and more gracious. She looked really shocked and asked me if I was OK, and took a good look at my foot. I wasn’t hurt, and I told her I was fine. Oprah said, “Well, that’s worth a picture,’ and she put her arm around me and we took some photos.”
