A man was run over by his own vehicle after he forgot to put on the parking brake at a St. Albans gas station.


A 56-year-old man was seriously hurt Monday night when he was run over by his own vehicle at a St. Albans gas station, according to police.

The victim had neglected to put his Ford SUV into park as he was going to fill up his tank at the Gulf station at Merrick and Farmers boulevards around 6:30 p.m. and it started rolling forward, cops said. As he tried to stop the vehicle, it ran him over.

He was taken to Jamaica Hospital in critical condition with severe head trauma, authorities said.
