Often the simplest deeds may be deadly. Victoria Strauss, 23, a Florida native and Ohio State University graduate, would never have believed that her attempt to retrieve a credit card that had fallen out of the car would result in her early death.
Strauss was attempting to leave the parking garage at 45 Vine Street in Ohio when the event occurred. She dropped her credit card while attempting to pay her parking fee. Strauss then unlocked her car door and reached out to pick it up, but she had inadvertently accelerated her vehicle. The automobile collided with the payment kiosk, pinning Strauss’s head between the car door and the door frame and killing her instantly.
The heinous crime was caught on surveillance cameras in the garage about 11:37 p.m. on Monday, January 18, 2021. The lady’s corpse was located the next day, about 5:40 a.m. on Tuesday, when a security guard spotted an unconscious woman at 45 Vine Street and alerted the police. EMS personnel declared her deceased at the site. The police department posted a press notice on Strauss’ death on Facebook.
