Man crushed by own truck

New Castle County Police are investigating an accident in which a man was struck by his own truck.

Investigators say the 21-year-old male victim got out of his Ford F-350 in Glen Eagle Village apartment complex Wednesday morning.

The victim then crossed the street toward a metal construction storage container where he intended to assist a co-worker.

Police say the unmanned vehicle rolled across the roadway, pinning the victim against the storage unit.

An investigation reveals the truck was not shifted into park.

The man was transported to Christiana Hospital in critical condition.
