The Middlesex District Attorney's Office has identified Wei Wang, 64, of Acton as the woman who was struck and killed by a motor vehicle in a Market Basket parking lot in Westford on Thursday. She was left pinned underneath the weight of the auto while rescue crews rushed to the scene. A woman in her 50s was standing at the rear of her motor vehicle when a second vehicle, in the process of parking, hit her auto, causing it to roll backwards into the victim and pin her underneath, according to a press release from Westford Police Chief Thomas McEnaney and Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan.
Sources tell 7News that the woman was loading groceries into her auto when she was hit.
"There was a woman under the vehicle and I could see her legs moving", a witness said.
Details from the state's preliminary investigation into the death reveal Wang was standing behind her own auto when another vehicle, trying to park, struck Wang's auto.
