ORLANDO (CBS4)- An elderly central Florida man was killed while trying to guide his wife into a parking spot, authorities said.
The Florida Highway Patrol reports that 91-year-old Fedico Santiago was directing his wife, 58-year-old Alba Jimenez, into a space at the College Park Towers parking lot on Thursday. As Jimenez was pulling in, she suddenly accelerated, running over a raised concrete parking stop and hitting Santiago.
It wasn’t immediately clear if the car ran over Santiago or just hit him and knocked him down.
FHP continues to investigate.
