Florida Woman Killed

An elderly Florida woman is dead this morning after her husband hit her with their van.

The incident happened Monday around 12 p.m. at the entrance to a private drive on Resota Lane in Panama City.

The highway patrol says 80 year old David Evans had stopped his van to let his wife open an access gate. But, the vehicle surged forward, striking the woman and crashing into a chain-link fence.

Seventy-five-year-old Marcelle Evans was pronounced dead at the scene. No charges have been filed in the case.

Troopers say the investigation is continuing.
