ENCINO (CBS) Authorities say a 53-year-old Van Nuys man was run over and killed by his own pickup truck.
Rogelio Avina was struck and killed around 12:40 a.m. Friday at the intersection of Archwood Street and Hayvenhurst Avenue, according to coroners investigator Christie McCracken and Los Angeles police Sgt. Cameron Dunnet, watch commander at Valley Traffic Division.
Avina was reportedly scavenging through trash bins for recyclables in the Lake Balboa when the vehicle went backwards and ran over him.
Dunnet said Avina died at the scene.
They found him (Avina) with the vehicle resting on him, Dunnet said, adding that a neighbor alerted police to the accident.
I wonder what his DUmp name was? ........../s?????

Evidently an exhausting experience for the truck. Joe Biden Unfortunate Choice of Words Trophy and Darwin Award in one article. Good find.
I would not expect this from a pickup. More of what you expect from an SUV.
Sad story but I am comforted by the fact that his gun didn’t jump up and shoot him.
Guns don’t kill people. Pickups kill people. /s
Isn’t Van Nuys the porn capital of the world?
You can laugh, but I have seen several situations where a tractor with the brake off has done some real human damage.
Big things that roll don’t have a conscience. They also tend to be very quiet.
Park your pickup truck next to a SUV often enough and it will pick up bad traits. :)
The pickup is undoubtedly an SUV wanna-be.
NEVER, EVER name your truck CHRISTINE.

Poor guy. RIP.
