DELTONA, Fla. (AP) _ Volusia County authorities say a 17-year-old boy accidentally struck and killed an elderly woman outside a Laundromat.

The crash is still under investigation, but deputies say criminal charges are not likely for the unidentified teen.

The Orlando Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/NBK0QX ) the boy was with his family at a Deltona Laundromat on Saturday when his mother told him to move the family van.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The teen was cited for driving without a license and his mother was cited for knowingly allowing an unlicensed driver to get behind the wheel.
