UPDATE: One Killed In Driveway Accident In Greendale

The accident happened Friday morning.

Update published Monday, April 16:

A Greendale woman has been identified as the victim of an accident in her driveway on Friday, April 13.

Greendale Police Chief Dewayne Uhlman says Rhonda Sue Fritch, 59, was maneuvering a 2002 GMC Sonoma pickup truck in the sloping driveway of the home on Dorman Avenue.

Uhlman said Fritch likely had her driver side door open to get a better look at the wheels of the truck so they would not go over the blacktop and drop down the hill. However, the vehicle did begin to slide down the hill. Fritch was ejected out of the open door of the sliding truck and became trapped beneath it.

Intoxication is not believed to be a factor, Uhlman said. The accident does remain under investigation.
