Mr. Pickle was attempting to get a motorist’s car started. After adding gasoline and trying to jump it with booster cables Mr. Pickle attempted to apply power directly to the starter. As he did so the car attempted to start and ran on top of Mr. Pickle. The motorist had forgotten he had left it in gear and Mr. Pickle did not check it. He was transported to the hospital with head injuries and broken ribs. He died as a result of his injuries.
