Thursday, October 3, 2013
A Thomasville, N.C., woman allegedly was run over by a tandem trailer in Ridgeway on Wednesday evening, according to the Virginia State Police.
Sgt. Robert Carpentieri of the state police said the incident occurred around 5:10 p.m. Wednesday at the On The Run Truck Stop on Greensboro Road.
The 55-year-old woman apparently was underneath the wheels of a tandem trailer when the driver started to pull out, Carpentieri said.
“He felt like he ran over something,” the trooper said, adding that the woman was not associated with the driver.
The woman was flown to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C., Carpentieri said. Information on her condition was not available Wednesday night.
The names of neither the driver nor the woman were released.
The truck belonged to Premier Transport of Forest Park, Ga., Carpentieri said.
The incident remains under investigation, he added.
