Woman Dies After Being Backed Over By Husband

Posted: Updated:

BURLINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Northern Kentucky officials said a 76-year-old woman has died after being hit by a vehicle driven by her husband.

The Boone County sheriff's office said 79-year-old Nathaniel Simpson was backing into his garage as his wife, Phyllis Simpson, was standing inside the garage and going into the rear of the house.

Investigators believe Nathaniel Simpson mistakenly hit the accelerator instead of the brake, backing over Phyllis Simpson. She died at the scene Monday afternoon in Burlington.

The sheriff's office is investigating.
