SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Police say a 34-year-old man who was changing a truck tire died when the tractor trailer's driver accidentally ran over him.

It happened yesterday south of downtown Salt Lake City.

Police say James A. Boren was placing a jack under the truck around 3:40 p.m. Another employee of the tire shop didn't see Boren and told the truck's driver to pull forward.

The truck ran over Boren.

Police say the truck driver was not cited.
