A 43-year-old Magnolia, Iowa, man was critically injured Wednesday night when his own vehicle dragged him across a parking lot in west Omaha.
Daniel R. McGrew became trapped under his 1994 Honda Civic in a First Data Resources parking lot in the Old Mill area about 7 p.m. Wednesday, Omaha police said.
McGrew apparently was working on the vehicle when it began to move. Police said he tried to stop it by getting in front of the Honda, but it knocked him down, pinned him and dragged him across the parking lot.
Dana Franks, 55, of Omaha heard McGrew's cries for help and jumped into the Honda and applied the parking brake, police said.
McGrew was taken to Creighton University Medical Center in critical condition.
