An 18-year-old Chicopee man was in stable condition Wednesday after he was run over while taking a nap in a driveway Tuesday night.
Police responded to 70 Claire St. about 10:20 p.m. Tuesday after receiving reports that Torre Gamble had been run over and suffered injuries in his chest area, according to Chicopee police officials.
Gamble was apparently waiting in a car in the driveway before the incident, but decided to get out of the hot car and lay in the driveway behind a different car in order to cool off. He fell asleep behind one of the rear tires while waiting, police said.
Shortly after 10 p.m. someone from inside the home was asked to move a car and the driver accidentally backed over Gamble, police said.
There did not appear to be foul play, police said.
