HILLSBORO, Mo. (AP) – An 86-year-old St. Louis man has died after his car rolled into a lake.

The accident happened Wednesday afternoon at Lake Tishomingo in Jefferson County. Authorities say John McKenzie was in the passenger’s seat when the driver, also in his 80s, left the car and went into a home.

The car began to roll backward and went into the water. The Missouri State Highway Patrol’s Marine division found the vehicle with McKenzie dead inside.

Police are investigating if the car was not put into gear correctly.
