Woman Dies on Her 92nd Birthday After Vehicle Drove Through Nursing Home

An elderly woman died over the weekend after she was hit by a car while sitting in a nursing home dining room. At around 3:45 Thursday afternoon, an 85-year-old man who was traveling to the facility to visit his wife experienced a sudden medical emergency, which caused him drive through the dining room of the nursing home.

The vehicle struck a 91-year-old female resident who was in a wheelchair drinking coffee in that area. The driver and the resident were transported to a nearby hospital as a result of their injuries. The resident died Saturday on her 92nd birthday. The driver of the vehicle was treated and was released to the nursing home to recover from his injuries. No charges have been filed as a result of the accident. For more, read the story.
