ORMOND BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A 70-year-old central Florida man has died after being dragged by his neighbor's car across his driveway.

Police said Timothy Postlethwait was talking to a neighbor Sunday as she sat in her car when she suddenly backed up and knocked him to the ground. Driver Ann Owen's door was open and police say Postlethwait was somehow caught in the car door and dragged across the driveway.

Seventy-one year-old Owen also fell out of the vehicle. Her car stopped after hitting a tree in a neighbor's yard.

Owen was taken to the hospital. Her condition is not known.

Police said a traffic homicide investigation is ongoing.
