BRADENTON, Fla. — A 79-year-old woman mistakenly backed into seven people in a parking lot with her SUV, killing three of them and injuring four.
The Florida Highway Patrol said in a news release Wednesday that Doreene Landstra of Palmetto has been ordered to appear in court next month after receiving a citation for improper backing.
The collision happened Sunday at the Sugar Creek Country Club, a mobile home community about 45 miles south of Tampa. Residents had gathered for church services inside a clubhouse building.
