Daughter runs down and kills mother in Toronto parking lot, police allege

Police allege that a 43-year-old woman ran down and killed her mother in a parking lot in north Toronto.

TORONTO — Police allege that a 43-year-old woman ran down and killed her mother in a parking lot in north Toronto.

Around 2 p.m. Tuesday, police received a report for a woman who had been struck by a car outside a Leon’s Furniture store.

When they arrived, according to Const. Victor Kwong, 65-year-old Eleanor Campbell was on the ground and pronounced dead shortly thereafter.

Kwong said Campbell had been eating lunch in the car with the driver.

She then got out of the car and slowly walked across the parking lot with her walker when the vehicle accelerated and ran her down.

He said police have security video of the incident and aren’t looking for any suspects.

“But we want to hear from people who knew about the relationship between the mother and daughter and what that was like before the incident,” Kwong said.

Michelle Campbell was arrested Tuesday night and charged with second-degree murder.
