BEAVERTON, Ore. – A 92-year-old woman has been killed after the car she was a passenger in flipped in an assisted living facility parking lot, police said.

Initial reports from police say the driver of the car, a 94-year-old woman, was trying to park at Hearthstone Senior Living around noon Wednesday when she lost control of the vehicle.

Officers say it appears she backed into a parked car, crashed head-on into a tree, got turned around while accelerating through the lot and struck another parked car, flipping her vehicle onto its top.

Her passenger, Phyllis Wolfsehr of Portland, died in the crash, Beaverton police officials said.

The driver and someone sitting inside one of the parked cars were both taken to the hospital; they are expected to survive their injuries.

Beaverton police said it was a tragic accident.
