Elderly Woman Dies In Pedestrian Accident
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A senior woman died this week after she was run over by her friend in a tragic
pedestrian accident at a San Marcos apartment complex parking space. Police say the woman
was run over at approximately 5:50 a.m. at Chateau Lake San Marcos Retirement
Community on Circa del Lago. The 83-year-old victim was approaching a
vehicle using her walker while the vehicle was moving, according to the
California Highway Patrol.
The 83-year-old driver and Lake San Marcos resident told the CHP that he
had instructed the woman to wait by the curb while he backed out of his
space. The California Highway Patrol said it appears there was some confusion
and the driver backed up over the female. The driver told the patrol that
he removed the woman from under the vehicle and tried to help her. Security
guards at the San Marcos Retirement Community called the police. First
responders arrived on the scene and transported the woman to Palomar Hospital
where she died. The California Highway Patrol said they will conduct a
thorough investigation. CHP officials said that the preliminary investigation
points to a tragic accident. No information was given on the victim’s
medical condition prior to the accident.
