Yesterday, they disclosed that the car that hit the victim was his own. The man parked in the lot last Tuesday and was walking away when he tried to push the alarm button on his key chain, police said. He instead activated his remote car starter.
The standard-transmission car, which had been left in first gear, revved to life and drove at its owner. The man was stuck between the front of his car and the back of a van when emergency crews arrived.
Fortunately, the 32 year old man survived to dust himself off and tell the tale (or not), but sustained injuries to his legs and back. Unfortunately for him, the McGuinty government delisted chiropractics from the public health plan about four years ago.
