A 65-year-old resident was found dead in a local parking lot Monday after trying to start her car.
Police were called Clawson Manor apartments, 255 W. 14 Mile, west of Washington, at about 7 p.m. July 9 after the woman was discovered underneath her 2003 Pontiac Vibe, which, officers said, ran her over.
Although the cause of death is being investigated, neighbors told police she had to adjust something under the hood of the vehicle in order for it to start, according to reports. When she was found, the vehicle’s gear was in drive, but the car had been stopped by the woman’s body.
Police have classified the incident as an accident pending further investigation and an autopsy from the Oakland County Medical Examiner.
The woman’s name was not initially released, pending notification of her family.
