Man recovering after being struck by own truck

ELKHART, Ind. -- An Elkhart man is recovering after he was run over by his own truck.

It happened just before noon, Friday.

Richard Cochran, 74-years-old, got out of his truck to run inside his home.

Instead of putting the vehicle in park, it was in reverse.

The truck rolled backwards and trapped Cochran, until firefighters were able to life the truck off of him.

Cochran was taken to Memorial Hospital, no word on his condition.
