62-year-old Dwayne Brasher, husband of Jelly Bellys chief executive Lisa Rowland Brasher, has run over a man he was taking for a ride on a WW2 tank at the Fairfield, California home of his father-in-law Herman Rowland, chairman of the candy company.

Kevin Wright, 54, also of California, died when he fell from the edge of the tank and went under the tracks as Brasher drove it across a field.

Herman Rowland, who is an avid collecter of military machinery, expressed the family's sorrow:

“Our hearts and prayers go out to his family,” Rowland said. “We will do everything in our power to help them get through this enormous loss…. Many of my family members have been inconsolable since the accident. There are no words to describe the grief we are experiencing.”
