The accident occurred in Brooklyn. An elderly woman died under the wheels of a personal vehicle in her driveway. According to New York Post, before the tragedy, she was praying in the car and apparently forgot to put the car on the handbrake. As a result, the owner of the car received serious injuries from which she died.

Joan Behan, an 87-year-old Brooklyn resident and devout Christian, was killed by her car. According to her son, she returned home from a two-hour workout and prayed for 20 minutes in her car in her driveway.

After praying, she stepped out of her blue Toyota Corolla, and at that moment tragedy struck. The car did not have the handbrake on, so it rolled backwards and crushed the woman. The accident occurred on April 10 near a home in Gravesend on West 10th Street around 15 p.m.

Behan suffered serious injuries to her head and torso and was rushed to NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn, but the victim could not be saved. According to the son, his 80-year-old mother was very active, healthy and witty. She went to the gym several times a week.
