Elderly man in critical condition after truck rolls over him at Lufkin gas station

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Emergency personnel rushed an elderly man to the hospital Tuesday morning after he lost consciousness at a gas station at the intersection of Atkinson Drive and Timberland Drive and his truck rolled over him.

The accident occurred between 9 and 9:15 a.m. Tuesday. Lufkin Police Sgt. David Walker said the elderly man, L.G. Dove, was getting gas at the Chevron convenience store at the intersection of Atkinson Drive and Timberland Drive when he somehow lost consciousness and fell to the ground.

Because the Ford F-150 truck was not in "Park," it rolled down the hill and into Timberland Drive, rolling over Dove in the process.

Dove was life flighted from the scene to ETMC Tyler, where he was listed in critical condition, as of 5:20 p.m. Walker said authorities do not know how the man lost consciousness or how he received the head injuries.
