A man lying in his New Smyrna Beach driveway -- possibly because of intoxication -- was run over and killed by a vehicle driven by his wife, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Thomas Clark, 52, died at Bert Fish Memorial Hospital after the incident, which occurred around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday on Spruce Street.

According to the FHP, Clark's wife pulled into the driveway after making a left turn off Spruce Street and did not see her husband, who was lying in the driveway.  Her vehicle ran over Clark, and she immediately called for help, troopers said.

A FHP report says Clark was possibly intoxicated.  Alcohol-related tests are pending, the report stated.

An investigation is ongoing.
