By Associated Press

CORINTH, Miss. (AP) - An 82-year-old Corinth woman died after a vehicle rolls on top of her.

Authorities tell WCBI that Juanita Rogers was killed when a 2002 Ford Explorer rolled back and pinned her to the ground Saturday.

Corinth Police Captain Chuck Hinds says Rogers and her sister, 77-year-old Lorraine Rogers, were unloading something out of the back of the unoccupied vehicle when it started moving.

Juanita Rogers was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police are investigating, but Hinds said the incident was an accident.
