We all talk about being very careful about backing up, we must also remind our ground guides to be aware of their surroundings.
This just happened at our local Pilot Flying J truck stop.
Woman struck by truck at Flying J
An 82-year-old woman from Maine suffered multiple injuries Wednesday morning after being run over twice by a truck at the Flying J truck stop.
The incident occurred at 9:45 a.m. when the woman, who was returning home after vacationing in Florida, was standing behind a box-style truck to block traffic for her husband who was driving an RV. The truck driver didn't see the woman, backed over her, and then drove over her again after witnesses started yelling at him to try to gain his attention.
The victim had numerous injuries, but doctors expect her to live.
Dothan police have ruled the incident an accident and no charges will be filed.
