Woman accidentally backs car into husband in Rye, pins him to wall

RYE - A local man was transported to Portsmouth Regional Hospital on Thursday as a precaution after his wife accidentally pinned him between their vehicle and a low stone wall.

Rye Police Chief Kevin Walsh said they received a call around 9:16 p.m. from 2000 Ocean Blvd., a condominium building with a common driveway, about a car versus pedestrian.

Officers arrived to learn Ruth McKenney, who Walsh said is in her mid-70s, had accidentally put her vehicle into reverse instead of drive, pinning her husband between the car and a stone wall he had been standing against.

Walsh said the contact was brief and Mr. McKenney did not appear to have any substantial injuries on scene, but was transported to the hospital as a precaution.

Walsh said the whole thing appears to be just an "unfortunate accident."
