Man Killed by Own Car

On June 20 at 2:23 p.m. police responded to an accident in the 3700 block of Gentrytown Drive involving a vehicle that had been parked on an incline and in neutral.

A 68-year-old Antioch man had pulled the emergency brake release thinking it was the hood release, and the vehicle began rolling backwards. While trying to stop the vehicle’s movement the victim fell and was run over by the front tire of the vehicle. He sustained life-threatening injuries and was airlifted to a local hospital where he was later pronounced deceased.

Police are withholding his name at this time.
