Los Angeles:  On Monday, December 15, 2014, around 9:56 a.m., an elderly driver accidentally ran over two pedestrians, killing one and causing the other to be hospitalized with severe injuries.

The 91-year-old driver in a 1987 Mitsubishi Montero was backing up her vehicle in the 3800 block of Grand View Boulevard when she struck the two pedestrians. 

One pedestrian, a 74 year-old female resident of Los Angeles, died at the scene.  The other pedestrian, an 83 year-old male resident of Los Angeles, was transported to a local hospital with severe injuries.  The driver was interviewed by officers; and after drugs and alcohol were determined not to be a factor, she was released from the scene.
