WOODBURN, Ore. (AP) – Police say a 45-year-old Woodburn man died after his son accidentally ran him over with the car they were working on.
Woodburn police say they responded to a call of a vehicle versus pedestrian accident Thursday afternoon.
Police began CPR on the man upon arriving. They say he died later of injuries sustained from the accident.
Investigators say the man and his 14-year-old son were working on a car in their driveway when the father asked the son to pull the car forward.
Police say the teen pulled the car too far forward and when his father told him to put the car in reverse, he accelerated too fast, knocking down his father and running over him.
The man’s name has not been released.
