MURRAY, Utah, July 2, 2018 (Gephardt Daily) — Police have identified an elderly woman who died Sunday after police said her husband accidentally hit the gas pedal of their car and struck her outside their garage in Murray.
Murray City Police spokesman Officer Kenny Bass told Gephardt Daily Monday the deceased has been identified as Sophie Ranglack, 96.
Murray Police Sgt. Ross Huff told Gephardt Daily Sunday the incident occurred just after 1 p.m. in the area of 5972 S. La Salle Drive (650 West).
The couple had just returned from church meetings and Ranglack got out of the car to open the garage door, when her husband accelerated by mistake and hit her, Huff said.
Bass said an investigation is ongoing, but at this time officials believe the incident was a “tragic accident.”
Gephardt Daily will have more on this developing story as information is made available.
