A man was run over by his own vehicle in the town of Tampico in Yakima County, Washington.

The sheriff's office said that a 74-year-old man was fixing the idle on Monday, and reached his hand to start the car, forgetting that the car was in reverse.

The car lurched back, knocking him down. A tire rolled over his head and his chest.

The sheriff's office said the man was conscious when he was taken to Yakima Regional Medical Center.
