A woman has died in a freak accident while retrieving a ticket from a paid parking machine at a Gold Coast shopping centre.

The woman is believed to have pressed down on the accelerator while leaning out the window of her car at Pacific Fair shopping centre, Broadbeach to collect a ticket.

The car has sped off and her head is believed to have hit the structure holding the boom gate, say police.

Police and paramedics were called to the shopping centre about 2pm on Wednesday to attend to the seriously injured woman.

She died at the scene.
