WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Police in North Carolina say a woman was killed when an unoccupied car rolled through an apartment complex parking lot and hit her.

Winston-Salem police say in a news release the car was parked and unoccupied when it began to roll backward Monday morning and hit 66-year-old Linda Whitaker Idol.

Authorities say Idol was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Winston-Salem Journal reports the driver of the car was at the scene of the accident. Police Lt. J.S. Doss said it was too early to speculate on possible charges.
