A pedestrian is lucky to be alive after he was run over by a truck’s trailer at an intersection. But this wasn’t a normal traffic accident. It appears that the pedestrian deliberately walked under the trailer while trying to cross the street.
Randall Compton, a 44-year-old trucker, was headed northbound on U.S. 41. He came to a stoplight and waited for the green. But when he pulled away, he ran over 62-year-old Randy Hallmark.
According to the Kentucky State Police, Hallmark is a local. While he was trying to cross the street, he apparently decided to cross by walking under Compton’s trailer. While he was under the trailer, the light turned green, and Hallmark was run over.
Hallmark was taken to a local hospital where he underwent emergency surgery for multiple injuries. But according to SurfKY, he is expected to survive.
