In Gary Wednesday night, police say a 69-year-old man was run over by a rental car he thought he had put into park, but it was actually in reverse. Gary Police Public Information Officer Corporal Gabrielle King says at about 11:45, the man was dropping people off in the 56-hundred block of Melton Road, when he stepped out of the car. Corporal King says the vehicle ran over the man, who was pronounced dead at the scene. Police say no one was else struck by the vehicle. The man's identity had not been released as of this morning.
