The woman who was struck and dragged by her own car last week has died.
The B.C. Coroners Service is investigating after the death of a 73-year-old woman who was found pinned under her vehicle on Monterey Drive in Nanaimo at about 8 p.m. Thursday.
“She was transferred after the accident to Victoria General Hospital, but unfortunately injuries proved too severe and she succumbed to them [Monday] evening,” said Barb McLintock, coroner, in an e-mail.
She said the coroners’ investigation is “in its very preliminary stages” and couldn’t provide further information about a cause of death or how the accident occurred.
