Man's Car Runs Over Him Twice

October 23, 2003

A 50-year-old man died Wednesday after being hit once and run over twice by his own out-of-control car, Brea police said.

Quoc Nguyen of Pomona was pronounced dead about 7:15 p.m. in a parking lot in the 400 block of West Lambert Road, said Lt. Martin Needham of the Brea Police Department.

According to Needham, the only witness to the accident said Quoc was chasing his 1987 Jaguar in circles in the parking lot. Just as the unidentified witness called out to Quoc to get away from the car, it struck Quoc and knocked him to the pavement, Needham said. The car then circled around twice more, running him over each time. The last time, Needham said, Quoc was "rolled up inside the wheel well," causing the car to stop.

"Our guys are still investigating it, trying to figure out what happened," he said. "Maybe we can get more witnesses."

He said it was unclear how the car got away in the first place or why it was going in circles.
