TAMPICO, Wash. -- A 74-year-old man was sent to the hospital Monday morning after he was run over by his own car.
The man was standing next to his Jeep in the Tampico Store parking lot when he reached in and started the car, according to the Yakima County Sheriff's Department. The car was apparently in gear and knocked the man over. The wheels turned and the car backed over his chest and head.
Officials said he was conscious and alert when they arrived. He was later taken to Yakima Regional Hospital.
