LA MESA, Calif. (AP) — A runaway car has crashed into a San Diego County nursing home and killed an 89-year-old man.
Police say the Audi sedan was parked at the top of a hill in La Mesa on Tuesday but the driver didn't set the parking brake or put the car in gear.
Lt. Ray Sweeney tells U-T San Diego that the car rolled backward about 260 feet, arcing across a road and smashing more than three feet into the room of Henry Hashiguchi.
The car bumped Hashiguchi's chair, knocking him to the floor.
His niece tells the paper that Hashiguchi suffered head injuries and never regained consciousness. He died at a hospital.
