LAKE MILLS, Iowa — A 75-year-old Lake Mills woman reportedly died Friday morning after her daughter unknowingly ran her over in a Jeep.

Authorities are still investigating.

Iowa State Patrol reports Darla Andrews, 49, of Lake Mills, allegedly backed out of her driveway at 306 N. Washington in an attempt to go look for her mother, Betty Ann Harris.

State trooper Mike Haugen said Andrews had been looking for her mother for about 20 minutes prior.

Andrews reportedly did not know Harris was in the pathway of her vehicle and unknowingly ran over her, Haugen said. The daughter then left to drive around town in her search for her mother.

Upon her return, she found Harris lying in the roadway. The mother was pronounced dead at the scene.

The incident reportedly took place just after 7:30 a.m. Friday.

Lake Mills police and Lake Mills ambulance crews assisted at the scene.
