Man run over by dump truck, killed

By Associated Press. CREATED Aug 20, 2014

CHUBBUCK, Idaho (AP) -- A 75-year-old Pocatello man has died after being run over by a dump truck.

The Idaho State Police say the accident happened at about 7 p.m. in Chubbuck.

The ISP says Devere Lowry was standing behind a dump truck when he released the brakes on a trailer being pulled by a truck. The brakes on the dump truck had not been set and when the trailer brakes were released, the dump truck rolled backward over Lowry. He was trapped between the dual wheels on the driver's side of the truck.

He died at the scene.

The accident is still under investigation.
