Man runs wife over with car, then himself

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego police Friday investigated an accident in the Miramar area, where a 69-year-old man ran over his wife with his car, then was himself run over when he got out to check on her without first setting the parking brake.

The man backed his 1999 Toyota Corolla over his wife, who is also 69, in the 10400 block of Isleworth Avenue late Thursday afternoon, said San Diego police Officer David Stafford.

Police were called to Sharp Reese Stealy Medical Center, where the couple drove themselves following the accident, about 5:45 p.m. Thursday, Stafford said.

The woman suffered an open fracture to one arm and an injured elbow, while her husband injured his foot and had abdominal bruising, Stafford said. None of the injuries were life-threatening.
