Ms. Prince was found under a Ford Expedition which had been backing up in the parking lot of the Vista Gardens Marketplace. She was unresponsive and had no pulse. Firefighters removed her to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead.
The incidence of such backing-up crashes is quite frequent and a subject discussed on this website in the past. It seems unfathomable that a vehicle could attain a rate of speed sufficient to kill someone but the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration has studied a variety of different possible causes. http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/rules/regrev/evaluate/rearwindow-report/toc.htm
No charges have yet been filed against the driver although it is hard to imagine this wrongful death in Glendale would have occurred without some degree of negligence. The bottom-line slow down when backing up and be careful in parking lots.
