Mary von Lange, of Haines Road, died at her home from multiple injuries, according to the coroner's office, which has ruled her death an accident. No autopsy is planned.

Springettsbury Township Police Lt. Todd King said von Lange parked her 2008 Honda Odyssey in the lot of The Embers Restaurant & Lounge at 100 Memory Lane, but accidentally left it in reverse gear.

When she got out of the minivan, it ran her over, King confirmed.

The coroner's office said von Lange was hospitalized at a long-term critical-care hospital after the crash, but was released to her home two days ago.

Police have closed their investigation into the matter, King said.
