Willimantic Woman Killed in Accident in Andover

A Willimantic woman was killed when she was pinned between a car door and a tree in Andover Thursday.

Connecticut State Police said 59-year-old Florence Caillard was working as a caregiver for a man who lived on East Street in Andover when the fatal accident occurred.

Investigators said Caillard got out of her vehicle but did not set the emergency brake on a sloped driveway. As she walked around the passenger side of the vehicle and opened the door, the car began rolling backward. Caillard was pinned between the passenger side door and a tree off the edge of the driveway. She suffered fatal injuries.
