Driver Hit Wrong Pedal In Fatal Crash

KSAL StaffJanuary 13, 2015

Newton police say a woman might have hit the wrong pedal before her car drove into a retirement, killing an 82-year-old woman inside.

Police Lt. Scott Powell says Wanda Dyck died at a hospital Sunday after the accident Saturday at the Asbury Park Retirement Homes in Newton.

A car driven by a 52-year-old woman jumped a curb, went onto an ice-covered pond and then plowed into Dyck’s apartment. The ceiling collapsed and Dyck was buried under debris.

The driver suffered injuries that were not life-threatening.

Powell says the staff of the home was able to get the other nine residents out of their rooms without any injuries.

He says investigators are awaiting toxicology reports but it appears the driver simply hit the gas instead of the brake.
