SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The body of a man who had died hours earlier was run over by a van that he apparently had crawled under, police said.

The man's name has not yet been released.

About 6:40 p.m. Saturday, a man began to back out the van, which had been parked in a fenced lot.

The driver's father-in-law, who was outside the van, yelled for him to stop. The van had run over a man and he was dead, police Lt. Robert Linton said.

The man probably crawled under the van to get out of the rain and died, Linton said.

He said the state Medical Examiner's Office determined the man had been dead several hours before his body was run over.
