After being entangled underneath a truck, a 28-year-old lady was dragged for eight miles in her automobile on a road in Kansas, Missouri.
According to NBC, police in Leawood, Kansas, are investigating after receiving reports at 3:40 a.m. on Wednesday that a truck heading westbound on Interstate 435 (I-435) was dragging a silver Kia beneath the edge of its trailer.
The situation was captured on tape as many other automobiles attempted to flash their lights to alert the truck driver.
He eventually pulled over after around eight kilometres.
The driver of the Kia, a Kansas City resident, was brought to the hospital for treatment but has since been released.
After two officers were dispatched to the “unknown accident,” persons told dispatchers that they “believe someone is inside the vehicle that’s caught underneath the truck,” according to police audio obtained by local newspaper The Kansas City Star.
Captain Brad Robbins reportedly informed local media that he thought the truck was passing through a green light when a southbound Kia went through a red signal, striking the trailer’s back wheels.
According to The Star, fire and ambulance crews also responded and were initially unable to establish a pulse on the driver. When she regained consciousness, she lamented about how much pain she was in.
A day later, two people were killed in a car accident near the same road. According to Overland Police, two automobiles collided after exiting I-435, with one hitting a cement barrier and tipping several times.
Both people in the car were declared deceased at the site. The automobile was attempting to change lanes on route 69, according to police.
