Elderly woman dies six weeks after accident in CVS parking lot

An 87-year-old woman who was run over by a car driven by an 88-year-old woman in late May has died from her injuries.

Florianne D'Aprile died in hospice care July 7. She had spent nearly six weeks at Bayfront Health St. Petersburg after the May 27 accident, which occurred in the parking lot of the CVS at 7405 Starkey Road in Seminole.

Pinellas sheriff's deputies said D'Aprile was standing near her car when Moonyeen Everett backed over her with her Chrysler 300. D'Aprile was pinned under the car's front wheel as Everett backed up and dragged D'Aprile several feet.

The accident remains under investigation.

Doctors initially said D'Aprile wouldn't survive her injuries, but as the weeks wore on, many of her injuries healed, said her son, Rick D'Aprile.

But every time she seemed to improve, another complication set her back. About three weeks ago, doctors had to amputate her legs below the knee. Both legs were infected from injuries sustained in the accident, her son said.
