A man from New York was killed after being run over by his own vehicle on Business 29/70.
The accident occurred when a 38-year-old man was driving a Ford truck north on the highway when the man pulled over for a break, according to police.
The man continued to get out of the car without putting the truck into park. The truck then rolled over him and he died as a result of the injuries sustained. The passenger in the vehicle was able to stop the truck, but not before it struck the vehicle. The passenger gave the details to the police.
The accident caused the roadway to be closed for sometime because they originally thought the accident was a hit and run. Police are continuing to investigate the accident, but no charges have been placed one anyone.
