HOUSTON A 70-year-old man was killed after being run over by his own truck at a Wells Fargo in southeast Houston Friday afternoon.

According to Houston police, the man drove up to the bank in the 2800 block of Woodridge around 1:15 p.m. and began to use the ATM machine.

He opened the door and was partially out of his Ford F-450 pickup truck conducting his transaction. As he finished, the pickup began to roll backward and the man fell out. The pickup ran over the man, then struck a white Honda Accord. The driver of the Accord was not injured.

The elderly man was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. His identity is pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.
