The death of Godfrey, Illinois man is being called a tragic accident.

Madison County Coroner Stephen Nonn says 78 year old Richard Gonzales was killed Tuesday afternoon in the driveway of a relative's home in Alton. Crews were called to the home in the 3300 block of Lincoln about 2:30 p.m.

Nonn says Gonzales had apparently tried to exit his car before putting it in park. When the car started rolling, he tried to get back inside to stop it, but was pinned between the open door and a fence.

Rescue crews tried to resuscitate him at the scene, but Gonzales was pronounced dead at the hospital.

His family says they believe the accident happened while he'd been delivering Valentine Day cards to family members, as was his custom on holidays.
