By The Associated Press
GOSHEN — A motorist attempting to brake stepped on the gas pedal instead, running over and killing a 44-year-old woman she was trying to pick Wednesday morning in northern Indiana, police said.
The driver of the vehicle, an employee of ADEC Inc., told Goshen police that as she began to stop, she pressed the gas pedal, causing the vehicle to knock the victim to the ground.
The vehicle pinned the victim underneath its front end, police said.
The victim’s name was not immediately released.
ADEC serves developmentally disabled clients in Elkhart and St. Joseph counties.
