FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) -- Police say an Indiana pastor has died after his wife backed their van over him at a food bank.

Police say the Rev. James Haugen died Thursday at the Community Harvest Food Bank in Fort Wayne

WANE-TV says Haugen was a pastor at Living Waters Lutheran Church in Wolf Lake and was helping to load supplies for the Wolf Lake Food Bank at the time of the accident. Wolf Lake is about 25 miles northwest of Fort Wayne.

Police said Haugen was behind the van and giving directions when his wife accidentally backed over him.

Police say food bank employees used a forklift to lift the car off of Haugen but he died later at a hospital.
