VENICE, Fla. - Troopers are investigating the death of a Venice man Tuesday after he was run over in his driveway.

It happened just after 10am Tuesday at a home on Grouse Way in the Pelican Pointe Golf Club community.

According to Florida Highway Patrol, 69-year-old Gary Lamson was standing in the driveway of the home when a sedan driven by 71-year-old Joan Lamson moved forward.

Gary attempted to stop the car, but it hit him and ran him over.  Lamson was taken to Venice Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead from his injuries.

Charges are pending as the investigation continues.
