The Mandan Police Department has released the name of the driver whose vehicle struck and killed an elderly woman last week.

Shirley Katherine Lee, 79, of Mandan, was walking across a parking lot of an apartment complex in the 400 block of 17th Street Northwest about 7:30 p.m. Thursday when she was hit by a vehicle being backed up by 74-year-old Gene Mosbrucker, police said. Lee was taken to the hospital, where she died.

No formal charges were immediately filed against Mosbrucker. Mandan police said Monday that an investigation into the incident "will be completed shortly," and the case will then be turned over to the Morton County state's attorney's office for review.
