A resettled woman in Memphis, Tennessee, who was reported to have been hit unknowingly while her husband reversed the car from the parking lot at the Hollywood Street in their Woodcrest apartment complex, died Monday morning. According to the eyewitness, the driver was trying to park the car.
According to an eyewitness, the victim was walking to the leasing office to make the rent payment while the car reversed by her own husband hit her from the back.
The driver, Shanti Ram Bhujel, in his 40s, who reportedly kept reversing the car also hit the wall of an apartment leaving a Somalis woman injured. She is being treated at a local hospital, it is learnt.
According to Amir Gurung in the same city, the victim, Son Maya Bhujel, was pronounced dead after she was rushed to a nearby hospital.
