Relatives said the incident happened around 6.15 p.m. while Peters was walking up Picton Road heading to her home.
Relatives said she saw the van approaching her and got out of its way by standing in a neighbour’s yard, but the driver of the pick-up lost control and hit her.
They said the way she fell, “she ended up at the back of the van”.
The driver then reversed the vehicle over her and crushed her small frame, following which he sped out of the area, hitting three other cars that had been parked at the bottom of Picton Road.
A female relative, who spoke to reporters but did not want to be identified, said: “He could have stopped and picked her up. I mean, other people would have come out and beat him, but he would not have died.”
