RIVERSIDE, Calif.— Authorities in Southern California say a 69-year-old man who was trying to prevent his daughter from driving drunk was run over and killed by the woman in her driveway.
Riverside police Sgt. Dan Reeves said Saturday that 37-year-old Soukvilay Barton ignored her father's pleas not to drive and backed her BMW convertible out of the garage, striking him.
Bounmy Rajsombath was rushed to a Riverside hospital, where he was pronounced dead Friday night.
Barton was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. Police say they don't know if Barton has a lawyer, and a listed number for her couldn't be located.
