An elderly woman who was run over by her own car in a Walmart parking lot in Memphis has died.

Police say that Peggy Rose, 74, was driving in reverse with her door open when she accidentally struck a pedestrian, according to WREG. The pedestrian subsequently fell underneath another vehicle.

Rose then reportedly fell out of the door and was run over by her own car, which finally came to a stop after crashing into another vehicle parked nearby.

The incident occurred on the afternoon of Nov. 1.

This young teenage singer was shocked when Keith Urban invited her on stage at his concert. A few moments later, he made her wildest dreams come true.

Rose and the pedestrian she hit were both transported to a local hospital, where Rose died of her injuries. The pedestrian's condition has since been categorized as non-critical.

It was a bad week for Walmart parking lots. On the afternoon of Nov. 2, a man was badly burned when his vehicle reportedly caught fire in the parking lot of a Florida Walmart. The unidentified victim was airlifted to a nearby hospital in Gainesville, according to WJXT.

Authorities are currently investigating the cause of the fire.
