The story below from the Oregonian was sent to me by a reader. It’s sad on so many levels (emphasis mine):
A 97-year-old woman was killed Saturday in the parking lot of an apartment building in Milwaukie when she was hit by a car that was backing out of a parking space, the Milwaukie Police Department said Sunday morning.
Anna Hemming, 97 of Milwaukie, was walking behind a Subaru station wagon when the car struck her. Police responded to the incident in the 12200 block of SE 31st Place at about 3:32 p.m. She was taken to OHSU hospital, where she was pronounced dead shortly after arriving.
Police said Stanley Keltz, 79, of Milwaukie, the driver of the car, will not be charged, because the incident was an accident.
