Katharine McPhee, David Foster’s nanny fatally run over by elderly woman at car dealership
Katharine McPhee and David Foster experienced a devastating incident when their nanny, Yadira Calito, lost her life in a tragic accident at a car dealership. According to TMZ, the incident occurred at a Toyota dealership in San Fernando Valley, California. Calito was waiting for her car to be serviced when an elderly woman mistakenly drove her white Toyota RAV4 into the covered service bay driveway, hitting Calito. The driver accidentally pressed the accelerator instead of the brake, causing Calito to be pinned under the SUV and dragged for about 20 feet. Fortunately, bystanders came to her aid and managed to free her from underneath the car. Despite being rushed to the hospital in critical condition, Calito sadly succumbed to her injuries. Two other individuals were also injured in the accident but are expected to make a full recovery. The driver has not been arrested in connection with the incident.
Last week, McPhee, 39, took to social media to share the heartbreaking news and explain her absence from the final two shows of her and Foster’s tour in Asia. She referred to the incident as a “horrible tragedy” that had befallen her family. McPhee expressed her deep sorrow and apologized to her fans for not being able to perform for them. Foster, 73, continued with the remaining shows on the tour after McPhee returned home. The couple, who got married in 2019, revealed that their nanny, who cared for their 2-year-old son Rennie, had tragically passed away. Foster is also a father to five daughters from previous relationships.
