A 92-year-old woman has a broken leg after she was accidently run over by a 70-year-old man.

Police say it happened around noon on Friday at the Cardiology Group of WNY on Wehrle Drive in Amherst. Marjorie Lazarus of Getzville was holding the door handle of a vehicle when the driver, a 70-year-old man from Getzville, moved ahead.

The elderly woman fell between the vehicle and curbing. Though witnesses yelled for the driver to stop, he backed up, driving over Lazarus’s left calf.

She was taken to ECMC with a compound fracture.

The driver is not facing charges.
