Man Run Over, Killed Trying To Keep Friend From Leaving Party

SAN DIEGO (AP) — San Diego police say a man was run over and killed after lying down in front of a car to keep a friend from leaving his birthday party.

Officer Robert Heims says Jonathan Merkley and friends were drinking at a hotel when a female party-goer decided to leave around 12:30 a.m. Sunday.

Merkley apparently did not want her to go and lay down in front of her white BMW. Heims says the woman did not stop and ran over his chest.

Merkely was rushed to a hospital, where he died. The Garden Grove resident turned 34 on Saturday.

The Orange County Register says the woman was not arrested. The investigating is ongoing.
