Authorities say a woman has died after becoming pinned under her own SUV during a supermarket parking lot accident in northeastern Massachusetts

The incident happened in the parking lot of a Market Basket in Westford.

Investigators say Wei Wang, 64, of Acton, was at the back of her SUV at Market Basket late Thursday morning when another vehicle hit her SUV causing it to roll backwards and pin Wang underneath it.

The driver who struck her auto, whose name was also not released last night, remained on scene and cooperated with investigators, according to the statement.

Sources tell 7News that the woman was loading groceries into her vehicle when she was hit. "Our hearts go out to her family and our thoughts and prayers are with them, a feeling shared by everyone in our company".

The driver of the second vehicle remained at the scene, officials said.

No charges have been filed, but the investigation is ongoing.

A section of the parking lot was roped off with crime scene tape for several hours as accident reconstruction teams worked to piece together the moments leading up to the crash.
