Elderly Va. Woman Accidentally Backs Over Fallen Husband in Driveway

LANHAM, Md. (WNEW) — A 72-year-old Springfield, Va., woman mistakenly backed over her husband with a SUV after he fell in their driveway Wednesday morning, police say.

The man, 84-year-old Chong Sik Kim, was taken to Inova Fairfax Hospital and was pronounced dead a short time later.

Investigators determined that Kim walked to the mailbox at the end of the driveway, then slipped on ice and fell on his way back to the house, which is on the 7300 block of Hooes Road.

His wife apparently did not see him while backing their 2009 Lexus RX5 out of the garage and down the driveway.

Neither speed nor alcohol were factors in the crash and no charges will be filed.
