Sometimes the simplest of actions can prove to be fatal. In a freak accident, Victoria Strauss, 23, a Florida native and a graduate from the Ohio State University, would have never have imagined that her trying to pick up her credit card that had fallen out of the car would lead to her untimely death.
The incident happened when Strauss was trying to exit the parking garage at 45 Vine Street, Ohio. While she was trying to pay her parking fee with her credit card, she dropped it. Strauss then opened the door of her car and leaned out to pick it up, but instead, she had accidentally accelerated her car. This caused the car to collide with the payment kiosk, thus trapping Strauss’s head between the car door and the door frame, immediately killing her, the Columbus Police Department stated.
