Woman killed by driver in church parking lot in Lakewood, NJ

LAKEWOOD – A church community mourns the death of a member killed Saturday morning when a man making a K-turn in the parking lot mistakenly moved forward instead of backward.

Dilcia Maribell Guevara-Tabora, 46, was sitting on a sidewalk when she was hit by a Dodge Caravan driven by Abelino Landaverde-Ayala, 40, outside the building housing the St. Vincent De Paul Food Pantry, the captain of police Gregory Staffordsmith said.

Guevara-Tabora was taken to hospital where she died of her injuries.

Two girls, aged 12 and 13, were beaten as they stood on the sidewalk. They were taken to Jersey Shore University Hospital for further treatment of their injuries.

The two girls are not related to Guevara-Tabora, according to Staffordsmith.

A family member told News 12 New Jersey that Guevara-Tabora moved to the United States seven months ago with her husband and children.

Landaverde-Ayala received a summons for reckless driving and could face additional charges, according to Staffordsmith.
