The 87-year-old woman accidentally hit the gas pedal as her sister stood by the mailbox, FHP said.

PORT RICHEY, Fla. — An 86-year-old woman died Monday after her sister accidentally hit her with a car at her home in Port Richey, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Troopers said around 4:30 p.m., an 87-year-old woman was dropping off her 86-year-old sister at her home on Elm Leaf Court.

While the woman backed the Mercury sedan out of the driveway, her sister walked to the mailbox to check for mail.

After leaving the driveway, the 87-year-old woman changed gears to drive forward. That’s when, according to FHP, she accidentally hit the gas pedal, crashing into her sister and continuing forward until she hit a tree and a Toyota Venza parked at a neighbor’s home.

The 86-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.
