Husband runs over wife

Post by Lou on Wed Jul 15, 2009 7:30 am

An 84-year-old woman has died after her husband backed their car into her on the driveway of their Sheffield home.

A spokesman for South Yorkshire Police said the incident in Halifax Road, Grenoside on Tuesday afternoon appeared to be "a tragic accident".

The couple are thought to have been preparing for a day out when the 85-year-old man reversed the automatic Mercedes saloon on the driveway.

The car hit his wife and then crashed through a low wall, police said.

Police said the elderly couple were taken to Sheffield's Northern General Hospital, where the woman later died.

The couple have not yet been named by police as some relatives are yet to be informed.


There's something about this story that just seems extra tragic to me. There are a lot of people who die in accidents everyday, but it just seems such a shame that a couple that have reached this age should be separated by such a terrible event Sad The poor guy must be beside himself.
