Man Run Over By His Car In Drive Thru

A man is badly hurt after his car ran over him in a Lexington fast food drive thru.

It happened at Long john Silvers along East Main St. around 8:00PM Tuesday. Officials say the man's car stalled in the drive thru, so he got out to look under the hood, but didn't put the car in park.

While the driver was working on the car it started up and ran over him. A Lexington police officer was at the restaurant and rushed to get the car off the man. He was taken to the UK hospital with leg and chest injuries. He was last listed in fair condition.

    Now, now, let's not blame the hushpuppies for people's ignorance. C'mon now, if you get run over by your own car? Seriously :)
