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.
