According to deputies, an 86-year-old man died after his son ran him over several times at outside a Florida bar.

An 86-year-old Florida man was run over by a truck driven by his son several times on Saturday night and died at the hospital, according to officials.

Just after 8:30 p.m. Saturday, deputies responded to R Bar, in Treasure Island, FL and found a 2019 black Dodge Ram backed into a parking space in the parking lot.

Investigators say 86-year-old Thomas McKeown walked towards the truck and appeared to fall down in front of the truck.


According to investigators, the truck started to move and run over McKeown, dragging him, and reversed and moved forward several times, hitting the 86-year-old every time before fleeing the scene.
