Elderly Man Backs Over, Kills Wife

A 92-year-old North Carolina woman has died after her husband backed over her with his car.

The Star News of Wilmington reported Thursday that 89-year-old Robert Calhoun of Wilmington was trying to park his car in the garage when he ran over his wife, Josephine Howey Calhoun.

Police say Robert Calhoun was unhappy with the way he parked after pulling his car into the garage. His wife got out and was behind the car when he backed out.

Highway Patrol Trooper C.J. Lewis said Robert Calhoun thought he'd hit a cat or a dog.

When rescuers arrived, Josephine Calhoun was still trapped underneath the car. She died at the scene.
