Victorian man killed by his own car

A man has died after he was hit by his own car while delivering newspapers in Victoria.

The 78-year-old man died in hospital on Tuesday after he was struck in the early hours of the morning at St Albans Park, near Geelong.

It is believed the Whittington man was partially outside the vehicle delivering newspapers when the car accelerated, hit him and crashed into a fence.

Police will prepare a report for the Coroner, while investigations into the incident remain ongoing.

So far this year, 107 people have died on Victoria's roads.
