A Cambridge man may be suffering a twinge of embarrassment in addition to other injuries after he was run over by his own car.

The 32-year-old Cambridge man was pinned between his car and a van last week in the parking lot of a drugstore on Hespeler Road.

At the time, Waterloo Regional Police thought the man had been hit while walking into the store.

Yesterday, they disclosed that the car that hit the victim was his own. The man parked in the lot last Tuesday and was walking away when he tried to push the alarm button on his key chain, police said. He instead activated his remote car starter.

The standard-transmission car, which had been left in first gear, revved to life and drove at its owner. The man was stuck between the front of his car and the back of a van when emergency crews arrived.

"It seems he just inadvertently hit the wrong button," said Sgt. Fred Gregory of the traffic branch. "It certainly is an unusual set of circumstances."

He said it isn't unusual for police to hear of cars rolling away after being left in gear, but the starter component incident was a twist.

The man was taken to Cambridge Memorial Hospital with back and leg injuries. Both vehicles sustained minor damage.

Police sent the car for a mechanical inspection.
