Police say an elderly suburban Pittsburgh woman is dead after she asked her 15-year-old neighbor to park her car and he ran over her.

Eighty-three-year-old Anges Hunnell, of East Pittsburgh, was pronounced dead at a hospital about an hour after the accident Sunday afternoon.

Allegheny County Police say the boy struck Hunnell, who was standing next to the car as he parallel parked. She was knocked to the ground and trapped under the car. Neighbors say she had difficulty parking and asked the boy for help.

Police are calling her death an accident and say no serious charges are being considered, but they'll talk to the district attorney's office to see if any charges should be filed.
