An Independence man was killed Friday evening while helping a Kansas City man back up a vehicle.

Officers were called to the scene just before 7 p.m.

Police said Wayne Rasmussen of Kansas City was backing up a Ford Bronco on private property off Route K south of Seymour, Missouri when the crash occurred.

Anthony J. Fjeld, 59 of Independence was helping direct the driver while standing behind the vehicle.

Rasmussen attempted to stop, but pressed the accelerator instead of the brake and ran over Fjeld.

He was transported to an area hospital, but died a few hours later.
