CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A woman is grief stricken after she allegedly ran over her husband and killed him just before midnight Thursday, at the Breeze Ways Condominiums on Padre Island.

Police said the 52-year old woman was behind the wheel of a van trying to move forward just a bit, when the van suddenly accelerated on its own. A group of family members were gathered in front of her, and all of them jumped out of the way except for her husband.

The victim, a 54-year old male, was transported to Christus Spohn Memorial Hospital, where he later died. Police are calling the incident an accidental death caused by a vehicle malfunction.
