In a truly bizarre and tragic incident, a man suffered life-threatening injuries after he ran over his own head.

The unnamed Colorado male was at the wheel of his vehicle as he was backing out of his driveway early on Sunday morning.

He dropped a lit cigarette down the front of his jacket and jumped out to avoid being burnt.

Unfortunately the car was still moving and knocked him to the ground. The front-left wheel then rolled over his head.

A relative was in the car with him at the time of the incident.

The injured man was taken to a local hospital where he is in a critical condition though he is expected to survive.

Then freak accident is reminiscent of the time former East 17 singer, Brian Harvey, was run over by his own Mercedes.

He fractured his pelvis in seven places, and suffered broken ribs and a punctured lung.

Harvey blamed the incident on eating three massive baked potatoes with tuna mayonnaise and cheese which caused him to lean out of the car and be sick when he lost his balance.
