Most in Miami may consider themselves to be safe when walking through a parking lot. This may be due to a general assumption that once drivers pull into parking lots, they realize the need to reduce their speed given that they are in such close proximity to pedestrians. However, some find that certain drivers bring the same dangers found on the open road with them to parking areas. In some cases, they may simply be driving a little too fast for the given conditions. Yet in others, their negligent actions may simply be inexplicable.
Such appears to be the case for a parking lot collision in Ohio that took the life of an elderly woman. Authorities took a man into custody after he struck the woman while driving backwards through the parking lot. Along with the striking the woman, the man also reportedly ran into several parked vehicles. While it was not reported if drugs or alcohol may have played a factor in the accident, law enforcement officials did share that the man had been driving with a suspended license. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment, while the woman was reported to have already have died by the time officials first arrived at the scene.
