PARADISE, Calif. -

A man was injured after a runaway truck rolled over him in Paradise.

The incident happened in the 6700 block of the Skyway near Oliver Road around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.

An employee at Dave's Hair'Em was giving someone a haircut when he noticed his Ford F-150 pickup truck starting rolling in the parking lot.

The 72-year-old man went outside and tried to stop the truck by jumping in the driver's door.  He fell and the truck's front tire ran over him.  He was taken to the hospital, but appeared to be alert.
