lack of warmth: Once again a problem that could've been prevented by owning a stick.

Yup. Could have thrown that under the tire and probably would've stopped the car.

CALDWELL -- One man is dead after a freak accident in Caldwell this afternoon.

Idaho State Police say 71-year-old Roy Welsh of Caldwell was trying to jump start his 1979 Dodge Ram Charger near the intersection of Homedale Road and Montana Avenue. He was able to get his SUV running, but it was still in gear and rolled over him while pinning him against the curb.

The incident happened around 2:40 p.m. Police say the SUV then traveled across the front lawn at nearby Vallivue High School and came to rest after striking a tree.
Welsh died from his injuries at the scene of the crash. His family has been notified.

The crash is still under investigation.

That's some fine police work there, Lou.

Once again a problem that could've been prevented by owning a stick.  Manual drives don't take off by themselves.  They may roll away, but not take off.

Although it is a nice change seeing an elderly person running themselves over for a change.  If you are going to screw up bad, be kind and do it to yourself.
