OLIVE BRANCH — DeSoto County Coroner Jeff Pounders say a 71-year-old Olive Branch woman who was run over by an SUV died from internal injuries resulting from the accident.

Pounders tells The Commercial Appeal that Mary Reese died Friday at a Memphis hospital, where she was transported after the 9 a.m. accident.

Pounders says Reese’s neighbor, who has not been identified, planned to pick up Reese to take her to run errands. He said the neighbor backed out and went next door to Reese’s home. The neighbor did not realize Reese had been in the driveway behind the car when she backed out.
