GRANTSBORO, N.C. (AP) - State Highway Patrol troopers say an elderly man died after being hit by a car driven by an elderly woman in a Pamlico County grocery store parking lot.

Multiple local news reports say 87-year-old Russell Pegram of Bayboro was walking across the parking lot of the Food Lion grocery in Grantsboro on Saturday afternoon when he was hit. Troopers say 83-year-old Lilly Ross of Grantsboro was backing out of a parking space when she hit the man and three parked vehicles.

Troopers say alcohol or any other impairing substances are not factors in the crash.

Troopers say the crash is still under investigation and no charges were immediately filed.
