Yonkers man run over by own car, killed

A 72-year-old Yonkers man died Tuesday after he was run over by his own car in his driveway.

The victim?s wife, 76-year-old Lillian Chau, was waiting for her husband to pick her up from a senior center. When her husband didn't show up on time, she knew something was wrong. Chau rushed back to her Pershing Avenue home and found her husband, Hang Chau, pinned under his car.

Police and EMS workers rushed to the scene to try and save the husband. However, he died as a result of his injuries. Police are investigating what exactly caused the car to roll over the victim.
