A 91-year-old motorist ran over two people Monday morning while backing out of a parking space at the Mar Vista Post Office parking lot off Grandview Boulevard, according to Los Angeles police.

A 74-year-old woman struck by the SUV died at the scene and an 83-year-old man, believed to be the victim’s husband, was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries.

The driver of the 1987 Mitsubishi Montero has not been charged with a crime and was released after being questioned by officers at the scene, according to an LAPD statement.

Mia Duncans, photo editor of the Santa Monica College Corsair, was on the scene and reported hearing screams in the parking lot and described the driver as distraught following the crash.
