A U.S. postal driver faces homicide charges after running over and killing a woman walking in an ally, police said.
This week, police in the U.S. Virgin Island arrested Abagail Henry, 50, in connection to the incident.
On June 6, police in the Virgin Islands responded to a call saying a postal truck hit a woman, according to police.
Investigators said Louise Jackson, 67, was walking south in an alley when a U.S. Postal Service van driven by Henry started reversing.
Jackson was walking away from the van when she was hit and knocked to the ground, police said. The van then drove over her body. Investigators said after Henry realized she drove over something, she drove forward over the victim’s body.
Jackson died from her injury.
Police arrested Henry and charged her with negligent homicide and negligent driving. Her bail was set at $5,500 and she was released.
