An 82-year-old man from Bloomfield lost his life recently when an unoccupied vehicle that began to roll away ran him over, according to an article in the Daily Statesman.
According to investigators from the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the man was standing near the 1989 GMC pickup truck when it began to roll. It appears that he tried to get into the vehicle in order to stop it from rolling, but the force of the rolling vehicle pushed him between it and another parked vehicle at the scene. The man was pinned between the two vehicles and suffered injuries that later claimed his life.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol is still investigating the fatal Missouri auto accident. They are not sure why the truck began to roll, nor whether the man who lost his life was the owner or driver of the vehicle.
