SAN DIEGO (AP) — Authorities in San Diego say a married man and woman in their 80s were killed when he backed a pickup truck over her then was hit by the truck himself as he scrambled to help her.

The San Diego County Medical Examiner says in a statement Monday that 80-year-old Setsuko Yada was hit by her 87-year-old husband as he was trying to park their pickup truck on Sunday night.

The man then got out in what appears to have been an attempt to help his wife and was hit by the truck himself.

Paramedics declared the woman dead at the scene.

The man, whose name has not been released, was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead soon after.
