2 women at mailbox hit by furniture truck


Well-Known Member
ARAPAHOE COUNTY - A woman was killed and another was injured after deputies say a furniture delivery truck backed over them as they stood at a community mailbox on Saturday afternoon."I started yelling for the truck to stop, you know, 'Stop, stop!'" said Ernie Medina, witness. "When I seen the back tires go over her body I just got scared. That's why I called 911 right away."

The Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office says it happened just before 1 p.m. in the 7100 block of East Briarwood Drive.

When deputies got there, they say they found a 70-year-old woman and a 62-year-old Margie Hermansen lying underneath the furniture delivery truck.

"I was trying to get him to stop because he was still trying to go forward a little bit and he was like pulling, dragging the women," said Medina.

Both women were transported to Littleton Hospital, where Hermansen was pronounced dead. .......................

What an awful accident.
I'm sure the truck driver is really upset that this happened.
I think in this case the furniture truck helper should have been outside to the tail directing the backing operation.
Something both of these fellows will regret for years to come.
