WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita police say a man who was run over while trying to recover a stolen truck has died.

Police said Monday that 25-year-old Shawn Palmer died Sunday from injuries he suffered over the weekend.

Lt. Randy Reynolds said Palmer and his older brother went to a QuikTrip when they saw their father’s truck was being driven by someone they didn’t know. When the driver tried to flee in the truck, the brothers jumped on but were thrown off.

Reynolds says a trailer being pulled by the truck ran over Shawn Palmer. The older brother was treated and released at a hospital.

The driver, a 34-year-old Wichita man, was booked into the Sedgwick County jail.

The Wichita Eagle reports the pickup and trailer were recovered in a field.
