A teenage bodybuilder was crushed to death while trying to stop a minivan from rolling into another car.Mousa Alijahmi, a freshman at the College of Staten Island, was working as a valet at a Brooklyn restaurant when he died.

Police say the 17-year-old student had just parked the minivan and stepped out when the vehicle started rolling - apparently because he had not put it in park. As he ran behind it, the more than 3,000-pound van knocked him into a parked SUV, crushing him.

The teen died at Lutheran Medical Center.

Alijahmi's family had immigrated to Brooklyn from Yemen.
