SHARE W.V. man killed when car apparently rolls over him

WEST VALLEY CITY — A man was killed after his car apparently rolled over him Saturday afternoon.

Killed was:

Richard D. Bevan, 45, Tooele.

Bevan was probably fixing his car, which was found against a fence at 4330 W. 3500 South, said West Valley Police Sgt. Lamonte Cox. "There was a stick propped against the front seat and gas pedal," Cox said.

The car apparently rolled, even though police found the transmission in park, Cox said, which may mean Bevan was in the process of reaching up to park the car when he was run over.

Cox said witnesses saw the man being dragged by the car.
