FLATLANDS, NY (PIX11)—An awful accident at the McDonalds on Flatbush Avenue in the Flatlands section of Brooklyn claimed the life of a woman in her 60s.
Police say the woman was walking in front of the McDonalds when an elderly driver backing up her Nissan Quest minivan suddenly and accidentally hit the gas instead of the brakes. When she did, she plowed into the victim and pinned her beneath the car.
The victim was pronounced dead at the scene and there was little anyone could do. The driver of the minivan was not hurt and was allowed to head home with her car, which still had shattered glass across the bumper.
Investigators said the incident seems to be a tragic accident and no charges are expected to be filed.
