Maine Man Run Over & Killed By His Own Vehicle Thursday Afternoon
According to a report from Fox 22 Bangor, a man is dead following an incident where his vehicle malfunctioned and ran him over.
Fox 22 is reporting that 50-year-old, Alexei Evsikov of Bar Harbor (and Florida), was driving his 2004 Nissan Van in the area of Cross Street in Bar Harbor when it apparently began to malfunction.
Evsikov then stopped and exited the vehicle in an apparent attempt to remedy the situation. When he exited, he left the vehicle in neutral. After stepping out of the van it began to roll backwards, subsequently running the man over.
Police report that the incident occurred at about 4 in the afternoon on Thursday. Crews responded to the scene after reports that a pedestrian had been struck by a van. Sadly, the injuries sustained by Evsikov were fatal.
Fox 22 is reports that the Bar Harbor Fire Department was assisted on scene by the Ellsworth Police Department, Mount Desert Island Police Department and Bar Harbor Police Department.
