101-year old man struck by own vehicle in Graves County

A 101-year old man was flown to an area hospital after he was struck by his own vehicle Monday in Graves County.

The Graves County Sheriff’s Department investigated and says 101-year old Freeman Cook of Mayfield told deputies he pulled into his yard and believed he put his pickup in park.

Cook tried to get back inside the truck when it began rolling backward and he lost his footing and slid under the vehicle.

The truck rolled over him and continued rolling until a witness was able to get inside and put it in park.

Cook sustained several injuries and was flown to by Air Evac to an out of state hospital.
