Runaway U-Haul Rolls Over Driver In Millersville
MILLERSVILLE TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – A man is in the hospital this evening after his rented U-Haul truck broke loose on a hill, rolled over him and crashed.
The accident took place around 1:30 pm Tuesday afternoon at the Ridge at Green Haven apartment complex located on Hwy 31W in Millersville. MAP Officials say the driver was helping a family member move (a granddaughter we believe) when he pulled the fully loaded truck away from the apartment, parked the truck and set the brake.
Somewhere in the process of setting the brake and exiting the vehicle, the truck began to roll. Officials tell Smokey Barn News that as the truck started to roll the driver became entangled with it and was either struck or rolled over by the vehicle. After colliding with the gentleman the truck continued down a hill and crashed into a barrier.
The driver was taken to a field next to Save-A-Lot where Lifeflight was waiting to airlift him to Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville.
Word on his condition was not immediately available.
