Western movies singer-actor Rex Allen Sr. died Friday, several hours after his caretaker accidentally ran him over with a car, police said. He was 78.
Police believe his caretaker did not realize Allen was behind the car when she began to back it up.
Allen starred in several western movies, including a 1949 film called "The Arizona Cowboy," and narrated more than 80 Walt Disney films. His musical hits included "Streets of Laredo" and "Crying in the Chapel."
