Sun Prairie man run over, killed by own van


MADISON (WKOW) -- Madison police say a Sun Prairie man died Wednesday morning after being pinned under his vehicle.

Police say a witness told them the 58-year-old was jogging beside his van as it rolled into a parking lot on Odana Road, near Whitney Way.

It's not clear why he was outside the van, but the police report states he was trying to regain control of the van when he ended up underneath it. The van came to rest on top of him.

Police say the man was able to speak to emergency workers who arrived at the scene, but stopped breathing shortly after the van was lifted off him.

He was taken to a local hospital but could not be saved.
