LARGO – A Clearwater woman was killed when her car started to move, pinning her between a parked car and her own May 28.
Patricia McChesney, 61, was visiting a patient at Largo Medical Center that night, Largo police report. At around 11 p.m., she was driving through the parking lot on her way out when she stopped for an unknown reason and got out of the car while it was still in drive. She sideswiped a parked car before she was pinned.
Police speculate that she was possibly trying to get back into her car or catch up to it when she was trapped between the two cars. Her car was perpendicular to the parked cars in the lot, according to reports. She was caught between the driver’s side of her car as it came to rest against the rear of another car that was properly parked in a spot.
Hospital security found her pinned and called for help. The vehicle was still in drive when paramedics arrived and separated the cars to treat the driver. McChesney died as a result of her injuries.
No charges are expected in the case, which is still under investigation.
