McCOOK, Nebraska -- Authorities have released details of a Friday accident which killed a McCook woman.

The woman, 70-year-old Patricia Peters of McCook, is believed to have exited her vehicle while it was in neutral and was either attempting to place items in the vehicle, or arrange something on the passenger side, when it began to roll backwards and pulled her under the vehicle.

The minivan rolled down the woman's Cherokee Road driveway and across the street and striking a parked vehicle.

A memorial Mass was celebrated for Peters Tuesday at St. Patrick's Catholic Church in McCook.
