SHELBYVILLE, Ind. - Authorities were investigating after a woman was killed in an incident at a Shelby County horse racing track Friday evening.
The incident was reported at Indiana Grand Racing & Casino in Shelbyville just after 6:30 p.m., officials with the Shelbyville Police Department said.
Police said an older man and woman, believed to be husband and wife, were in the horse barn area of the track.
UPDATE: On Tuesday, police released the identities of the couple. The driver was Richard Paulus, 82, and the victim was his wife Kathlene, 81. They have an address in Lecanto, Florida.
The man was backing up his truck to hitch it to a trailer. As the woman was standing by the trailer, police said something went wrong and the woman became pinned between the truck and trailer. She died as a result of her injuries.
