(Meredith) – A 34-year-old man who was learning how to drive accidentally ran over and killed his 65-year-old father during a driving lesson in a church parking lot, Florida authorities said.
Florida Highway Patrol told WFLA the incident happened in Naples when the father was teaching his son how to park. The son allegedly accidentally hit the accelerator instead of the brake, driving over a parking block and hitting his father, who was standing outside the vehicle.
The father was taken to a local hospital in critical condition, but later died.
The son is from the country of Colombia and was getting a driving lesson in Naples, Florida, where his father lived.
The son was arrested and charged with no driver’s license resulting in a serious injury, which is a felony.
The names of the father and son were not released.
