Man Dies After Slipping On Ice, Being Pinned Under Vehicle

DOVER, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say a man who slipped on ice and was pinned under his vehicle later died at a Pennsylvania hospital.

The York County coroner's office was called to WellSpan York Hospital just before 1:30 p.m. Friday about the case.

Officials said police reported that the vehicle was apparently left in drive when the man got out in Dover Township.

After he slipped on the ice, police said, the vehicle rolled onto his legs, pinning him under the tire.

Officials said the man was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead of multiple blunt force trauma.

The death was ruled accidental.

The man's name and other details weren't released pending notification of his relatives.
