Man struck and killed by his own vehicle in Sioux Falls


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A Sioux Falls man has died after he was hit by his own car, according to police.

The 41-year-old man was driving his car in Eastern Sioux Falls and struck the back of a Jeep Cherokee.

The SUV was stopped in traffic at an intersection and waiting to make a left turn when it was struck by the car, according to police spokesman Sam Clemens.

As the man stepped out of his car, it started to go in reverse and the victim got caught under the vehicle as it began making circles. The car then ran over the man, fatally injuring him, the Argus Leader reported.

The car eventually stopped when it crashed into a nearby pickup.

The victim has not been identified.
