MADISON TOWNSHIP, OH (WOIO) - Charges could be filed against an 80-year old who backed into a Madison Township grocery store.

Earlier this month Lucille Bittner hit the reverse in her car and backed into Giant Eagle on North Ridge Road, hitting 67-year old Richard Swackhamer.

Swackhamer has remained in Metro in intensive care since the July 16th accident. He died Thursday.

Originally Bittner was not going to face any charges but that could now change.

Bittner also hit another pedestrian in the parking lot. That person was not seriously hurt.
