Man dies after being run over by his own car

A MAN has tragically died after being run over by his own car in NSW yesterday.

It’s understood the 62-year-old was driving along the Pambula Trail No 1 at Lochiel, about 25km west of Merimbula, when he stopped his Mitsubishi Triton ute.

Police say the man got out and it’s believed the Mitsubishi rolled forward, striking him before continuing to roll down an embankment.


It wasn’t until a member of the public found the injured man that emergency services were notified and rushed to the scene.

Paramedics desperately worked to save the man, however sadly, he could not be revived and died.

An investigation into the tragedy is underway.
