This individual was killed when he was run over by a vehicle. One characteristic of traffic accidents is the impression left by the protruding part of the vehicle, or the tire print left by a rubber bumper on the skin. No further info.

It is well known that if a person is run over by a vehicle a crushing type of trauma occurs. Severe crushing injuries of organs usually occure and are as a rule, obvious but the severity depends on the weight of the vehicle and its ground clearance. Running over the trunk can cause rib fractures, thoracic and lumbar spine fractures and crushing injuries of organs in the thoracic and the abdominal cavities.
