Police: Woman sat on truck, fell off, was run over, killed
RACELAND, La. (AP) - Louisiana authorities say a tractor-trailer ran over and killed a woman who had been sitting behind the cab and fell off after the truck started and headed out of the parking lot.
The Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office originally described the death about 6 a.m. Friday as a hit-and-run.
However, a later news release says it turned out the trucker had no idea that 47-year-old Laurie Arcement of Lockport was sitting on his truck, or that she had fallen off and his flatbed trailer had rolled over her.
Sheriff Craig Webre says surveillance video from the Raceland Truck Plaza showed her sitting between the cab and trailer, falling off, and being run over.
Another trucker reported the fatality.
The sheriff's office says it has not filed any criminal charges.
