SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A man who may have neglected to set his parking brake before stepping out of his car in a College-area neighborhood today suffered severe injuries when the vehicle began rolling and ran over him.
   
The accident on Arosa Street occurred at about 8:30 a.m., according to San Diego police.
 
Medics took the injured man to Scripps Mercy Hospital, where he was admitted for treatment of serious injuries.
   
The runaway vehicle also hit at least one other car, Officer Joshua Hodge said. Police shut down the road in the immediate area to allow for investigation and cleanup.
