SOUTH CENTRE TOWNSHIP -- A man is in critical condition after being hit by his own car that he was driving in Columbia County.

Police said the driver of the station wagon pulled over to the side of Columbia Boulevard near Berwick after issues with his car's throttle.

The driver then lifted the hood and started fidgeting underneath.

With his car still in drive, the station wagon then took off with the driver stuck under the hood for 70 feet before driving into a ditch.

"Still under investigation because the vehicle is still in drive and we're not quite sure how the vehicle took off on him and dragged him underneath the car back here," said Andrew Dalkiewicz, South Centre Township Police.

Again, the driver is in critical condition after that wreck in Columbia County.
