INMAN, S.C. (AP) — Spartanburg County authorities are investigating the death of an Inman man who had been pinned against a tree by a rolling car.

Coroner Rusty Clevenger says 32-year-old James Bryan Green was found shortly after 8 p.m. Thursday.

Clevenger says it appears Green’s car was in neutral and began to roll and he tried to stop it with his body. The coroner says Green was pinned against a tree but managed to free himself.

He was found unresponsive near the car.

Highway Patrol Lance Cpl. David Jones said troopers are investigating the death.

An autopsy was planned Friday.
