Yadira Colito, 55, was reportedly killed at a Toyota dealership in San Fernando Valley, California earlier this month while waiting for her car to be serviced, after an elderly woman accidentally drove into a customer reception
Megan Maybee, the Hamer Toyota dealership's director of communications, told Us Weekly in a statement: "We extend our deepest condolences to Yadira’s family, friends, and loved ones during this incredibly difficult time. The loss of such a vibrant life in such tragic circumstances is a heavy burden to bear, and we share in their grief.”
TMZ previously reported that an 84-year-old woman drove her white Toyota RAV4 into the covered service bay driveway, with authorities at the scene apparently saying the driver mistakenly hit the accelerator instead of the brake.
Yadira was reportedly “pinned under the SUV and dragged for about 20 feet” before bystanders came together to help free her from under the car.
She was rushed to the hospital in critical condition where she was later pronounced dead.
Two others were also injured in the crash, but are expected to make full recoveries.
The driver has not been arrested.
Yadira was a nanny for 39-year-old Katharine and 73-year-old David's son Rennie, two.
Following the incident, Katherine announced she had to rush home from her and her husband’s tour in Asia due to “a horrible tragedy”.
She told her Instagram followers: “Dearest Jakarta fans, it’s with heavy heart I announce I have to miss our final two shows of our Asia run.
“David and I have had a horrible tragedy in our family and at least one of us need to get back home to our family.
“Please know how sorry I am and how much I wish to return one day and perform for you all. Love Katharine.”
David was still able to take the stage for the final two shows on their tour, and shortly after Katherine’ post it emerged the tragedy she was referring to was the death of their nanny.
Katherine and David married the knot in 2019 before having Rennie in 2021.
David is also the father of daughters Allison, 52, Amy, 49, Sara, 41, Erin, 40, and Jordan, 36, from previous relationships.
