Man run over while working on truck in South Salt Lake
SOUTH SALT LAKE — A man remained in extremely critical condition Wednesday night after the large truck he was working on slipped into gear and ran him over.
The 54-year-old man had the hood of the running truck up and was working on it about 1 p.m. in the Union Pacific Railroad's Roper Yard, 2765 S. Orland Place Drive (850 West). The man, who was not immediately identified, is an employee of a private company and does not work for Union Pacific.
The truck reportedly weighs between 2½ and 3 tons. As the service truck began to move, it knocked the man down and its front wheels passed over the man's midsection, South Salt Lake Police Sgt. Gary Keller said.
The man was transported to a local hospital with critical injuries, Keller said. The accident is under investigation.
