Parking lot incident kills woman, injures her infant granddaughter
Baltimore County Police say officers were dispatched to a parking lot in front of Target, located in the 11000 block of Reisterstown Road, at approximately 10 p.m. Saturday night. The pedestrian was pronounced deceased at the scene and has been identified as 67-year old Ravinder Rao.
The child that she was holding, her 11 month old granddaughter was transported to a local hospital for treatment of injuries and is in good condition at this time. Preliminary investigation has revealed that a 2014 Nissan Altima was pulling away from the store when it struck a legally parked 2010 Nissan Sentra. A pedestrian, who had just exited from the parked Nissan Sentra, was standing nearby holding a small child, and was subsequently also struck as a result of the collision. The Nissan Altima continued traveling forward, also striking the adult pedestrian directly and causing both she and the small child to fall to the ground.
Baltimore County Police Crash Team continues to investigate.
