PD: 74-year-old woman run over, killed at Costco gas pumps in Scottsdale

SCOTTSDALE, AZ - Police are investigating after a 74-year-old woman was reportedly run over and killed near the Costco gas station in Scottsdale.

Officer David Pubins of Scottsdale police said an 86-year-old male backed his Jeep SUV into another vehicle parked at the Costco gas station near Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard and Hayden Road.

The 74-year-old woman was in the vehicle that was struck.

The woman then exited her vehicle to inspect the damage, Pubins said, and was run over by the Jeep.

According to Pubins, the woman was dragged for a "short distance" where she was later pronounced dead at the scene.

The investigation remains in the early stages, however, alcohol does not appear to be a factor, said Pubins.

Costco remains open, but the gas pumps will be closed for the next couple of hours.

No other details were released.
