Halton police say a woman who was seriously injured in a unfortunate accident, earlier this month in Oakville, has died.

On Monday the 84-year-old Burlington driver, involved in a collision on Valleyridge Drive south of Dundas Street West, died as a result of complications arising from injuries sustained in a May 8 collision where she was struck by her own vehicle.

Investigators say the driver turned into and became stuck on a median separating the driveway and parking lot at St. Luke’s Anglican Church.

The driver and her two passengers exited the vehicle, and decided to call a tow truck to free the vehicle.

As the driver and a passenger reached into the vehicle to retrieve belongings, the 84-year-old accidentally put the vehicle in reverse causing it to swerve ejecting both from the car, then hitting the driver.  The vehicle stopped when it hit a set of concrete stairs in front of the church.
