IPOH: A 58-year-old man died in a freak accident when his parked Toyota Hilux rolled and crushed him at a residential project construction site in Falim here.
Deputy Ipoh district police chief Superintendent Ahmad Termizi Abd Haq said in the 1am incident on Monday, the body of Chang Wing Khoon was found face down inside a ditch and underneath his own vehicle which had also rolled into the ditch.
Chang died on the spot from grievous injuries to his backbone.
Ahmad Termizi said initial investigation showed that the construction site manager had failed to pull up his vehicle handbreak when he went to inspect the location.
"The deceased, who was alone at the time, may not have realised when his vehicle rolled down the slope and crashed into him," he said when contacted yesterday.
He added that the case had been classified as sudden death and the body was sent to Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital for post-mortem.
