Woman Killed Backing Out Of Driveway

PUNTA GORDA, FL. -- In a crash backing out of a driveway, a Punta Gorda resident died of injuries in the freak accident at 5:15 p.m. Wednesday.

Lillian F. Stalnaker, 89 of Punta Gorda, Florida was backing out of her residence's drive way on Pine Needle Dr. and Sugarwood St. in an eastbound direction. Mrs. Stalnaker accidentally pressed the gas pedal too hard and traveled in reverse on Sugarwood St. The 2008 Ford Fuson continued its course in an eastbound direction and into the westbound lanes of Sugarwood St., then struck a mobile home with the rear of the vehicle which came to final rest facing east on the south shoulder of Sugarwood St.

She was transported to Lee Memorial Hospital in Fort Myers.
