Paging Mr. Darwin . . .

Well, this is an impressive display:

A man who was trying to run away from police after a high-speed chase failed to put his pickup truck in park, and the vehicle ran over him, dispatchers said.

During the pursuit, Deputies L.D. Deitz and A.C. Pile saw the driver strike a trash truck, according to dispatchers.

The man finally stopped his truck and was attempting to flee on foot near Turkey Pen Drive, but he neglected to put his car in park. That's when the truck ran over him, dispatchers said.
It looks like this jacknut will pull through, which rules him out of Darwin Award contention. He might qualify for some version of this competition, tho':

He'd give Oliver a run for his money, at least!
