A Massachusetts woman was crushed to death by her own car when it backed over her as she loaded it with groceries.

Wei Wang, 64, of Acton, Massachusetts, died Thursday morning after the unfortunate incident in the parking lot of a Market Basket store in Westford, according to the Boston Globe.

Wang was putting groceries into her vehicle — which appears to be an SUV, based on aerial photographs from Boston's WBZ-TV — when another driver hit it, sending the vehicle rolling over her.


A witness told WBZ they saw that "there was a woman under the car and I could see her legs moving."

Emergency responders lifted the vehicle off Wang and performed CPR but she was pronounced dead at a local hospital, according to the Boston Globe.

No charges have been filed against the other driver, who has yet to be identified.
