SUV backs over, kills grocery store worker outside Trader Joe’s

ACTON, Mass. (WHDH/AP) — Police are investigating after an SUV backed over a grocery store worker in Acton, killing her.

Police said 18-year-old Bryce Nelson, of Vineyard Haven, was backing up in the parking lot of a Trader Joe’s on Tuesday night when he hit 62-year-old Diane Fichtel, of Ashburnham. She died at the scene.

Nelson remained at the scene. He has not been charged.

Police Chief Richard Burrows said they’re questioning Nelson, but said the death appears to be “a tragic accident.”

Trader Joe’s said it’s closing the store on Wednesday out of respect for the woman and her family.
