KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Authorities say a Tennessee man has died after he was hit by a car while mowing his lawn.

News outlets report that 50-year-old Roger Lawson died Sunday in a Knoxville hospital after being hit on July 23 in Alcoa.

Alcoa police said in a statement that Lawson was mowing his yard when 25-year-old Doris Hurst of Maryville drove off the roadway and struck him.

Hurst was taken into custody after investigators say she gave officers a false name at the scene. Hurst also had an unidentified outstanding warrant.

Police say additional charges against Hurst are pending.
