Sad News - But If You Have To Go. . .

http://www.wbaltv.com/news/18993306/detail.html

COLUMBIA -- Police said a 69-year-old Columbia man was killed Monday while working on his car at home.

The car, a BMW M3, rolled out of the man's driveway in the 5100 block of Columbia Road and ran over the victim when he tried to stop it, police said.

Authorities believe the victim, Michael Kim, was alone at the time of the incident.

No other details were released.

Sounds like a horrific way to pass. Lying there trying to get help as a vehicle squeezes the life out of you.

Wow that's awful. I've run up to stop cars from rolling downhill before... Not the smartest thing to do.
