RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) — Authorities in Southern California say a 69-year-old man who was trying to prevent his daughter from driving drunk was run over and killed by the woman in her driveway.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise says 37-year-old Soukvilay Barton ignored her father's pleas not to drive Friday night and backed her 2003 BMW convertible out of the garage, striking him.

Bounmy Rajsombath was rushed to a Riverside hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Barton was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. Investigators say additional charges are pending.

Witnesses say Barton had been drinking alcohol and arguing with family members.

Barton stopped the car after seeing that her father was injured. She sat across the street sobbing before she was taken into custody.
