SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — A 59-year-old Missouri man is dead after being struck by a car driven by his 89-year-old mother.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says Paul Martin of Brookline Station died in the accident Tuesday. The patrol says Martin was reaching inside a 2013 Chevrolet Equinox to help his mother, Martha Martin, remove the vehicle from park.

The patrol says the driver had her foot on the accelerator and the SUV began to move. Paul Martin fell and was dragged before being struck by the vehicle, which continued moving before it struck a storm shelter.

Martin was pronounced dead at a hospital.
