A Kentucky mom, Kimberly Riggs, 40, was killed over the weekend when she was attempting to start a lesson for her daughter to learn to drive.
After Sunday church, Riggs instructed the 15 year old to take the wheel and the girl sat in the driver’s seat of the car. Witness report the car suddenly leaped backwards, knocking Riggs to the ground with the car door. The car then began a series of out of control maneuvers, veering into a nearby street backwards, then forwards back into the church parking lot, the turning and hitting a fence, crashing through it, through a backyard and then striking a house. Witness claim the car then came back out of the yard, thru the parking lot, turned 180 degrees and hit Riggs again – pinning her against a fence.
Riggs was pronounced dead later at a local hospital. The daughter was treated and released with minor facial injuries.
Now, the video report below does not include the details about the car’s uncontrolled actions, just the car pinning the mother to the fence. So there seems to be a little mystery here as to what happened, but by all accounts it was a freak accident.
