On Monday (August 19, 2013) a woman was struck by a pickup truck and dragged approximately 1000 feet in Mundelein, Illinois.
The woman, age 23, was walking on a sidewalk in the 900 block of South Lake Street when she was hit by a pickup truck at approximately 10:15 a.m. The woman was then dragged for about 1000 feet.
The driver of the truck, a 56-year-old man from Lake Bluff, told Mundelein Police that he didn’t see the woman, and didn’t know the woman was being dragged under the truck.
Eventually, the pickup truck stopped when a motorist forced the driver to stop by getting in front of the pickup truck.
The woman was taken to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, with injuries that are called “substantial.”
The accident remains under investigation.
