A man who lost control of his van and crashed in Carville, France, survived the Wednesday night accident only to be struck and killed by his wife's car when she came to pick him up. The 54-year-old victim and his 16-year-old daughter walked away from the first crash, in which their car flipped and rolled over a few times. But as his 44-year-old wife drove to the scene after they called her for help, she lost control of her car at the same sharp curve, the New York Daily News reports, citing local media. Her car rolled and hit her husband, killing him instantly. The wife and daughter sustained minor injuries and were taken to a hospital, the Independent reports. (Read more car crash stories.)
