A 69-year-old Citrus County man was killed early Wednesday when he was run over by his own truck, authorities said.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Bernard White of Homosassa Springs was driving his 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 southbound on South Corbett Avenue just north of West Justice Court.

At 12:23 a.m., for some reason, White got out of the vehicle while it was still in gear.

The truck began to roll backward and into White.

Troopers said White sustained fatal injuries and died at the scene.
