The Florida Highway Patrol has reported that a woman has been involved in a severe accident after getting dragged by a pickup truck on Hanson Street.
The accident happened on Hanson Street near Ford Street. Officers said the woman was dragged for approximately half a mile before the driver stopped. She survived but was left with multiple and life threatening injuries.
Eyewitnesses said, the driver did not know he was dragging another person until another driver took action. The other driver passed the pickup, got in front of it and forced it to stop.
The woman was taken to the nearest hospital for treatment by the Emergency Responders who performed first aid treatment on her, FHP said.
The victim is said to be in stable condition as no details about her have been released to the press at the time of filing this report.
The driver has been taken in for questioning into the accident. The accident is still under investigation to find out how the woman became entangled on the truck.
