WOODBURN, OR (KPTV) -

A Woodburn family is mourning after a tragic accident Thursday afternoon took the life of a 45-year-old man.

Officers from the Woodburn Police Department responded to the accident at 2:30 p.m. and immediately began CPR on the man.

Responders activated the LifeFlight service, which transported the man to a Portland hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

An investigation by officers determined that the man had been working on a car in the family’s driveway with his son.

The man asked the 14 year old to pull the car forward, and then reverse. The teen backed the car too fast, accidentally knocking down the man and running over him.
