A man fatally struck his wife with an SUV on Friday as she was coming out of a Washington D.C.-area Capital One Bank, police said.
Alka Himanshu Tanna, of Silver Spring, Maryland, was coming out of the bank on New Hampshire Avenue around noon and was crossing a parking lot when she was hit by an oncoming vehicle, the Montgomery County Police Department said.
The car was a white Lexus being driven by her husband, identified as Himanshu Maganlal Tanna, the agency said.
The 59-year-old accelerated and struck his wife several times, police said. He then crashed into a nearby lamp post after knocking down a front column outside the bank.

He has been charged with first-degree murder and is being held without bond.
