A 79-year-old man died Thursday morning when he was run over by his own truck at his southeast Fresno home, police reported.
He was identified Thursday evening by the Fresno County Coroner as John Quillin.
The accident happened in the 4400 block of East Eugenia Avenue, near Church and Cedar avenues, about 8 a.m.
Lt. Joe Gomez said the man was working on a 1970s-era Chevrolet truck in his driveway. He started the pickup and it apparently ran over him, dragging him about 30 feet before running into a fence. Quillen was taken to Community Regional Medical Center, where he died.
