A woman is dead after her car crashed into the edge of a shopping mall parking deck in Charlotte and a section of the deck collapsed.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police spokeswoman Julie Hill said the
driver crashed into the edge of the top level of the parking deck
at SouthPark Mall. A small portion of the three-tier deck then
collapsed, and her car fell through the opening.
The woman was pronounced dead at the scene. She was identified by a police report as 64-year-old Shirley Sutton Hawkins, with no address listed. The report didn't say how she died.
The report did say that Hawkins' car was seen wedged on a
concrete median before it broke free and rapidly accelerated to the
edge of the parking deck.
