Man run over by own car in College area

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 40-year-old man suffered serious injuries Monday when he tried to put a stop to an unoccupied runaway SUV in front of a Rolando- area home.

The parked 2008 Mazda began rolling backward down a driveway in the 6100 block of Arosa Street as the victim was standing alongside about 8:30 a.m., according to San Diego police.

The SUV ran over the man, then struck three other vehicles before crashing to a halt, Sgt. Tom Sullivan said.

Medics took the victim to Scripps Mercy Hospital in Hillcrest for treatment of a significant head injury and a fractured pelvis.

Police shut down the road in the immediate area for a time to allow for investigation and cleanup.
