An 80-year-old Abbeville woman is dead after she was accidentally struck by a car her husband was driving.
The incident took place around 3:30 Sunday afternoon in the 300 block of Maude Avenue.
Police say the 81-year-old driver dropped his wife off in the driveway of their home before attempting to back into the driveway. Investigators say the man hit his wife before striking a fence. They add that the man didn't realize what happened until after he saw his wife pinned under the car.
According to Police Chief Tony Hardy, no charges are pending against the driver. As such, KATC is withholding the identities of the driver and the deceased.
