CHARLOTTE, N.-C. – A woman died after being hit by a vehicle just outside Bank of America Stadium during the Carolina Panthers game Sunday, the WSOC announced.
Police said Diane Babinec was crossing West Morehead Street with her husband at around 3:30 pm when she was hit by an SUV.
She was transported to the hospital and died Monday afternoon.
WSOC learned that Babinec had two great loves: his family and the Panthers.
"His body may not be beating here anymore, but his soul will beat forever for the Panthers," said Sonja P. Anderson, founder of the Carolina Pantherettes fan group.
Babinec was one of the first members of Pantherettes.
