NORWICH, Conn. (AP) — Norwich police say an 80-year-old local woman has died after being run over by her own car outside her home.
Authorities say Sylvia Welling apparently forgot to put her car in park and was run over Thursday afternoon. Police and firefighters responded to her Meadow Lane road shortly before 3 p.m. after a neighbor called 911.
Officials found Welling lying unresponsive in her driveway and she was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police believe her death was an accident, but they are investigating.
