ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A 27-year-old man died Tuesday when his tractor trailer ran over him in Anchorage's Ship Creek area, police said.
Aaron T. Murray was driving out of a parking lot on East Whitney Road shortly before 1:30 p.m. when he noticed the brakes of his rig were sticking. He apparently got out and went to the back of the truck with a hammer.
Murray was banging on a tire when something released and caused the rig to move backward, running him over, police said.
Police said a commercial vehicle inspector was called in to check the truck.
