Elderly man dies day he was run over by own car

SPRING HILL, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say an 83-year-old Spring Hill man has died after being run over by his own car.

Alfonse Kress was flown to St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa Tuesday afternoon with critical injuries where he later died. An autopsy will be performed Wednesday.

The Florida Highway Patrol reported that he moved his car out of the garage, turned off the ignition and got out. But he didn't put the car in park. When it began to roll down the driveway, he tried stopping the car but lost his balance and fell. That's when authorities say the car's left rear tire ran over him.

The car came to a stop at Kress' mailbox.
