SAGLE, Idaho (AP) - A northern Idaho man has died after a stalled car rolled and pinned him against some trees.

The Bonner County Sheriff’s Office says 56-year-old Charles Morales of Sagle died Tuesday.

Authorities say Morales and 55-year-old Robert Peterson were attempting to start a stalled Ford Taurus when it started rolling.

Authorities say both men tried to stop the vehicle but Peterson was flung from the vehicle onto the roadway while Morales was thrown over the embankment where he was caught between the vehicle and some trees.

Police say Morales was pronounced dead at the scene.
