2nd woman dies after being struck by car at Ohio concert

PARMA HEIGHTS, Ohio (AP) " A second woman has died after a car drove into a crowd of dancers last month at a community concert in suburban Cleveland.

Parma Heights police say 68-year-old Hinckley resident Nancy Gielas died Monday at a hospital.

The Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH'-guh) County medical examiner's office says another woman, 61-year-old Parma Heights resident Kathleen McDonald, died of heart failure during surgery for a broken leg two days after the Aug. 21 incident.

Police say a 74-year-old woman leaving the concert pressed the gas pedal instead of the brake while pulling out of a parking space and drove onto a makeshift dance floor in a parking lot. Nine people were initially reported injured, including the driver.

A police spokesman has said the driver likely will be charged criminally.
