    This does seem a bit morbid but I have to translate the following using an extended adjectival phrase in the German. I haven't really got to grips with this yet but here is my attempt:-

    - The cat I ran over is now dead

    - Die von mir übergefahrene Katze ist jetzt tot

    Vielen Dank !

    That's almost right:

    Die von mir überfahrene Katze ist jetzt tot.

    The past participle is "überfahren" without "ge".
