I bet no alcohol was involved either.

I wonder why he was behind the vehicle - shielding from a potential cable break, or trying to stop it once it started rolling.

Sounds like they winched it up the hill and parked it, thinking it was "safe". The car then rolled backwards and trapped the man.

Cheers, Ron.
