DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a Daytona Beach man suffered a fatal heart attack shortly after a thief took off in his car.
Police say Vittario Vecchiarelli pulled into his driveway Thursday and left his car running while he went to get his mail. That's when a pickup truck pulled up and a man got out and jumped into the driver's seat of Vecchiarelli's 2003 Chevy Cavalier.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports both vehicles sped away. Neighbors found the elderly man on his driveway and he told them someone had stolen his car. He died about 30 minutes later at the hospital.
Police say they don't know whether the man tried to chase the carjacker. There were no physical signs of an altercation on his body.
