Katharine McPhee’s son’s nanny died after getting run over at car dealership: report

A new report offers more details in the tragedy that befell Katharine McPhee and David Foster’s family last week.

Yadira Calito — who nannied the couple’s son, 2-year-old Rennie David — was fatally run over by an elderly driver at a car dealership in California, according to TMZ.

McPhee told Instagram followers on Thursday that she had to miss her and Foster’s final two concerts in Asia because of a “horrific tragedy” that required at least one of the two spouses to return home.

In a subsequent update, TMZ reported that the tragedy was the death of the nanny who worked for McPhee and Foster. And on Monday, sources told the site that Calito was the victim who died after a crash at Hamer Toyota in Los Angeles’ Mission Hills neighborhood last Wednesday.

An 84-year-old woman driving a Toyota RAV4 in the dealership’s service bay driveway crashed into the reception area around 9:10 that morning, according to Fox 11 Los Angeles. Investigators speculated the woman accidentally hit the gas pedal instead of the brake.

Fox 11 added that a 55-year-old woman — now identified by TMZ as Calito — was dragged 20 feet and trapped under the RAV4. She was taken to the hospital in critical condition but later died.

Two other people — a 23-year-old man and a 35-year-old man, both employees of the dealership — suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the incident and are expected to make full recoveries.

The driver escaped injury and declined hospitalization, according to Fox 11. She remained at the scene and was interviewed by police. The outlet also reported that the driver was not arrested and that authorities’ investigation into the incident was ongoing.

In a statement, the Los Angeles Police Department said, “All drivers are reminded to drive with due care, free of distractions, and be mindful of potential hazards.”
