The wife of former Indiana Rep. Lee Hamilton died this weekend after being run over by her own car. She died from her injuries hours later at the hospital.

Bloomington police captain Joe Qualters says 82-year-old Nancy Hamilton was taking her pet to College Mall Veterinary Hospital off east Third Street in Bloomington Saturday afternoon.

“When she went to retrieve her animal from the back of her car, apparently the vehicle had not been placed in park and was still in gear,” Qualters said. “It was determined the vehicle knocked her down but then also rolled over her.”
