tire ruts

here is the scenario

car drove over lawn beside driveway during the wet early spring
leaving ruts and a mound about 10 inches high 25 feet long.

roll the lawn mound and fill the depression then overseed?
this will compact the mound
should I aerate in the fall to deal with this?

anybody recommend labor time estimate

During a time when the soil is really wet and soft. Try to push the soil from the mound back into the ditch. Use your feet. If you are a little overweight--it will help. A heavy wheelborrow or mower tire could add additional pressure. You may have to peel back the sod. Where the area is squashed down you may be able to get under it with a pitchfork or potato fork and lift it and fluff it up. Won't be fun.
