ABILENE, Texas — An 80-year-old Abilene woman died from injuries she received when she was hit by a car in a parking lot Thursday.

According to the Abilene Police Department, Ida Schulz of Abilene was walking in the parking lot of a north Abilene superstore on Hwy 351, when a car backing out of a parking space hit her.

Schulz was pushing a shopping basket into the store when she stopped, bent down to pick up something she had dropped and was hit by the car.

The low-impact collision caused her to fall backward and hit her head on the pavement. She was taken to the hospital where she was later pronounced dead.

The APD said this is the 19th fatal collision this year, causing a total of 24 deaths.
