A man was standing in front of his Nissan outside of a Thai restaurant on Western Avenue in Gardena when he started the vehicle remotely. The car was unfortunately left in gear, so when it was started it ran over its owner and smashed into the restaurant.
At about 5:30pm Rector was apparently having trouble with the breaks on his logging truck when he got out of the vehicle to inspect it. Unfortunately, something caused the truck to roll and it struck Rector, leaving him dead at the scene.
Just after 10 a.m., Gerald Kuhns was apparently getting into his truck when it started moving, dragging him over a hill and into a trailer on Kerns Avenue. The Fairmont man was taken to Ruby Memorial Hospital. There is no word on Kuhns' condition at this time.
