95-year-old Montrose Woman Run Over in Driveway
A 95-year-old Montrose woman was fatally injured over the weekend when a car backed over her in her own driveway.
Mildred Rubey was pronounced dead at the Fort Madison Community Hospital. Lee County deputies say a 2001 Toyota Corolla containing Rubey and the driver, 73-year-old Marilyn Marshall of Montrose, became stuck on a culvert. As Marshall backed up in an effort to dislodge it, she didn’t realize that Robey had gotten out and walked behind the vehicle. Marshall kept backing up, right over Rubey.
