In Austria, a 91-year-old driver ran over and fatally injured his 84-year-old wife while backing out of his driveway. The man probably didn’t even notice the accident and drove away from home to go shopping without stopping, the police reported. Passers-by found the woman lying on the ground in K√∂flach and called the emergency doctor. But he was only able to determine the death of the elderly woman, according to the police.

According to his own statements, the 91-year-old only noticed the accident when he returned from shopping. The Graz public prosecutor ordered an autopsy of the body. The driver is charged with negligent homicide.
