TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - A Washington woman has died after being thrown off a car driven by her daughter.

The News Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/29xeFRN ) that the 62-year-old Puyallup woman called 911 in June and said she was sitting on the roof of her 25-year-old daughter’s car to stop the younger woman from leaving.

Pierce County sheriff’s deputies say the woman was sitting on the hood and talking to the driver. According to court documents, the vehicle was moving slowly but then jolted, throwing the mother onto the pavement.

She was taken to the hospital with a serious head injury and died the next day.

The daughter drove off, but a deputy stopped her. She is charged with assault, failure to remain at an injury accident and failure to obey an officer.

She has a competency hearing scheduled this month.
