Woman dies after husband accidentally backs car into her

A woman died on Saturday when her husband accidentally backed into her while they were cleaning their car at a petrol station in New York, according to police.

Isabel Ramirez-Cohetero, 51, and her husband, 50, were washing their red Jeep when the tragedy occurred, reports the New York Post.

The couple was moving the vehicle to dry it off when her husband realised he'd left the car in reverse.

When he jumped back behind the wheel to stop it, he accidentally stepped on the accelerator — backing the vehicle over his unsuspecting wife.

The woman was rushed to a nearby hospital, where she was pronounced dead, officials said.

No arrests have been made and the incident is still under investigation.
