An elderly driver has been charged over the death an 87-year-old woman who had been pushing a trolley at a Hamilton supermarket.

Miles Arthur Moodie, 77, made a brief appearance in the Hamilton District Court this morning.

He is charged with careless driving causing the death of Vera Moss Freeman at New World supermarket, Rototuna, about 10.20am on March 26.

Freeman was pushing a trolley out of the supermarket exit when Moodie's car allegedly hit her as she walked on the pedestrian crossing.

Witnesses told Fairfax Media at the time that Freeman's arm had been pinned under a tyre and she had a serious leg injury.

Moodie, also of Hamilton, was remanded at large without plea to reappear this month.
