NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. (AP) - A 73-year-old man has died after crashing his car in a Walmart parking lot at the end of his work shift there.

Police in New Hartford tell local media outlets that Melvin Wood of Utica had just left work at a Walmart Supercenter when the accident happened around 4 p.m. Saturday. Police say Wood apparently was stricken with a medical problem and crashed into a guide rail post as he drove toward the shopping plaza exit.

Police say bystanders and fire personnel tried unsuccessfully to revive Wood. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.
