Mequon police say 87-year-old Henry Winter likely suffered a medical episode when his van struck several parked vehicles before striking his wife who was walking in the Sendik's parking lot. Eighty-five-year-old Lorraine Winter was pronounced dead at the scene Monday afternoon in Mequon.

Henry Winter remained hospitalized Tuesday, and his current condition wasn't immediately known.

An investigation is ongoing, but charges aren't expected to be filed.
