D.I. Worker Struck By Vehicle After Helping Customer Load Items
MURRAY, Utah – An Deseret Industries employee was hospitalized after being struck when a customer drove away from a loading area.
The incident happened Friday at 11 East 4500 South in Murray.
Officials with the Murray Police Department said a customer had loaded some items onto a trailer when an employee asked for a receipt to verify the purchase of the items.
They said the driver refused the request, and then drove off. In the process of leaving, the employee was struck.
There was no video footage of the incident.
A woman who identified herself as the employee’s mother posted on the Murray Citizens Facebook group about the incident.
“The man got in his vehicle and gunned it knocking my son over,” said Wendy Willes. “The trailer ran him over.”
Willes said her son’s knee was dislocated and his femur was broken, among other injuries.
Police said the incident was still under investigation.
