SOUTHEAST, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say an 86-year-old suburban New York woman died after she was run over by a truck backing up in a parking lot.

The Journal News reports (https://lohud.us/1IbWc15 ) Barbara Fetzer died at a hospital after a pickup truck struck her Monday in the Putnam County Savings Bank parking lot in the town of Southeast.

Sheriff Donald Smith says Fetzer was walking across the lot when the driver backed out of his parking space, knocked her down and ran her over.

The county sheriff’s accident reconstruction team is investigating Fetzer’s death along with the department’s forensic unit.

No charges were filed against the truck driver.

Smith said “no one intended for this to happen.”
