His father was standing outside his car, teaching him how to park, when the son accidentally stepped on the accelerator, drove over a parking block and hit his father.

The 65-year-old was taken to Lee Memorial Hospital in critical condition. He later died.

His son faces a felony charge of driving without a license resulting in a serious injury.
