    get caught?

    Hi,
    Suppose someone closes the door of the car as you are leaving and your fingers are stuck (ouch!) How would you describe this?
    Is the following sentence correct?
    "I got my fingers caught in the car door."

    Yes, or you could use 'trapped'.

    That's the preposition I'd use.
