A west metro woman who died after she was run over by a car Thursday night has been identified.

Police say 57-year-old Diane Meder was hit along Arcola Lane in the City of Minnetonka Beach around 8:30 p.m.

She was airlifted to North Memorial Medical Center, where she died from her injuries, according to the Orono Police Department.

Her husband, 57-year-old David Meder, was behind the wheel of the car that hit her, police say.  Investigators believe it was not intentional.

He has been booked into the Hennepin County Jail for criminal vehicular operation resulting in a death.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation, but alcohol may have been a factor, police say.
