No charges in Aberdeen death involving 8-year-old driver
ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) - Aberdeen police say no citations or charges will result from the death of a woman who was pinned between two vehicles after she put her 8-year-old daughter behind the wheel.
Police say 30-year-old Brianne Nutter was supervising her daughter as the girl tried to back out of a driveway Tuesday afternoon. Her boyfriend, Chris Schulz, says Nutter wanted the vehicle moved about a foot so she could get a riding lawnmower out of the garage.
The girl lost control and hit a vehicle parked in the street. Nutter had the driver's door open and was pinned between the door and the parked vehicle. She died at a hospital.
Police Capt. Jay Tobin says it was a "tragic accident," and he hasn't seen anything like it in his 26-year career.
