Woman dies after car hits crowd at outdoor Ohio concert

Posted: Updated:

PARMA HEIGHTS, Ohio (AP) - One of nine people hurt when a car slammed into a crowd at an outdoor concert near Cleveland has died.

A county medical examiner says 61-year-old Kathleen McDonald, of Parma, died Tuesday, two days after she was injured when a 74-year-old woman drove onto a small dance floor.

Police say the driver confused the brake with the gas pedal.

They say the driver was leaving a Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin tribute concert in Parma Heights when she accidentally hit the gas while pulling out of a parking space.

The car spun around the dance floor, hitting people, a telephone pole and another car.

More than 100 people were at the concert.

Prosecutors are looking into whether they will file charges against the driver.
