(WESTFORD, Mass.) — Authorities say a woman has died after becoming pinned under her own SUV during a supermarket parking lot accident in northeastern Massachusetts.

The accident happened Thursday outside the Market Basket in Westford, about 30 miles northwest of Boston.

Authorities say a woman in her 50s was at the back of her SUV when it was struck by another vehicle. They say the collision caused her vehicle to roll backward, and she became pinned underneath.

The woman's name is being withheld pending notification to her family.

Police say the other driver stayed at the scene, and the accident remains under investigation.
