      Man accidentally drives over himself

      TAMPICO, Wash. (AP) - A man was run over by his own car in the community of Tampico in Yakima County.

      The sheriff's office says the 74-year-old was adjusting the idle Monday and reached inside to start the car, forgetting it was in reverse gear.

      Yakima Herald-Republic reports the car lurched backward, knocking him down. A tire rolled over his head and chest.

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