An 83-year-old woman died over the weekend in a freak accident in a Columbia grocery store parking lot, Richland County Coroner Gary Watts said Sunday.
Lottie Counts, of 119 Stanford Court, was a passenger in a car that struck a pole in a Food Lion parking lot in the 5100 block of Fairfield Road Friday evening, Watts said.
When the car backed up at a high rate of speed, the jolt was so severe to Counts that she was severely injured, Watts said.
She was transported to Palmetto Health Richland, where she died early Saturday morning of internal injuries from the accident, he said.
