A 76-year-old woman who drove to a cemetery to visit her husband's grave has been killed by her own car.

The woman inadvertently left the car running and in gear when she stopped at the Maple Grove Cemetery in Queens Sunday afternoon, police said.

She was about 50 feet from her husband's grave when the car mowed her down. She died at the scene.

Police say no criminality is suspected.
