A 74-year-old woman died overnight on Friday after falling and getting hit by the car that she was getting out of.
The accident happened on the 2900 block of Peyton Randolph Drive in Seven Corners. Detectives said that Amolia Lozano, 74, was exiting the passenger side of a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee when the car began to drift backward causing her to fall into the road behind the car.
According to police, the driver was unaware that the car was still in reverse, and accelerated, hitting Lozano and causing serious injuries. Lozano was transported to a hospital where she later died.
Police said the driver did remain at the scene and is cooperating with detectives. Detectives do not believe speed nor alcohol was a factor and they do not anticipate charges at this time.
