A Martinsburg woman may have suffered a heart attack moments before her car rolled forward about 30 yards and hit a tree in a convenience store parking lot late Sunday, police said.
Doris J. Vanmetre, 63, of Fairlawn Garden apartments, died as medics took her to City Hospital, said Sgt. C.C. Morton of the West Virginia State Police.
Morton said that when he arrived on the scene two minutes after he was notified of the 8:43 p.m. accident, medics and firefighters with the Bedington Volunteer Fire Department were removing Vanmetre from her 2001 Kia car.
