Woman dies after being run over by car in Morrisville parking lot

Posted July 10, 2012

— Police are investigating the death of a woman Tuesday in the parking lot of a Morrisville apartment complex.

Margaret Anne Dulaney, 43, was thrown from a moving car in the lot on Colwick Lane at about noon, and the car then ran over her, police said.

Investigators said they are trying to piece together what happened but said they believe Dulaney was driving because no one else was in the car at the time.

Police didn't release any other details of the incident.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Morrisville Police Department at 919-463-1643.

    Father God, Please help me in this time of loss of my good friend. I seem to be frozen with this overwhelming grief. My life is filled with this pain and heartache, But I turn my eyes to you as I seek to find the strength to trust in your faithfulness. You, Lord are a God of comfort and love and I ask You to help me to patiently wait on you and not despair; I will quietly wait for your salvation. My heart is crushed,but I know that you will not abandon me. Please show me your compassion,Lord. Help me through the pain and find strength. I believe the promise in your Word to send me fresh mercy each day. Though my vision is cloudy today,I trust your love will never fail me.

    Jesus, You came to heal the broken hearted and my heart is broken today Lord, and only you can heal my sorrow over losing my friend. I ask You, Lord to comfort me because You love me and have promised me everlasting consolation and hope through Your grace.

    Blessed be to God, even the Father of our lord Jesus Christ,

    Also to the person who made the note that she knocked over a trash can, trash day here is not until tomorow and the trash cans area actually on the sidewalk, not in the street. She'd have to actually drive onto the sidewalk to hit it!!

    This didn't happen in a bad neighborhood. It's also not an apartment complex, it's a townhouse community. Obviously the reporter didn't go to the actual location or he may have seen that!

    Its quite simple. Somebody's lying. If its a bad neighborhood, the witnesses would lie to simply keep the heat off of themselves.... if you know what I mean.

    The only thing that matters is that her family will now have to deal with this terrible accident. So sad they have to go through this. As for the reporter of this "story", that's another tragedy.

    Oh that's dreadful! I can't imagine what happened. Sad. :(

    "Police didn't release any other details of the incident." Hence the lack of detail....

    Chemmie, is that's the way it happened, I can understand that. But, the news said she was thrown, doesn't sound like it was anywhere near that. Thanks! And it is so sad, such a freak accident - so sorry.
