Slater Mayor John Kahler said He said he was told that bystanders picked the car up off of those who were trapped under the car.

“This just happened to be an unfortunate accident where some elderly people seemed to be leaving the situation quickly and lost control of their vehicle,” Kahler said.

Mary Nienow, 59, of Alberta Lea, Minnesota, was killed.

Nienow was a teacher at Southgate Elementary in Austin.
