A US man has been run over and killed by his daughter as he tried to stop her from driving drunk.

Soukvilay Barton, 37, ignored her father Bounmy Rajsombath's pleas not to drive and backed her BMW convertible out of the garage, striking him, California police said.

Rajsombath was rushed to a Riverside hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Barton was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Witnesses said Barton had been drinking and arguing with family members.

She stopped the car after seeing that her father was injured and sat sobbing before being taken into custody.
