A woman told police she was dragged by a truck driver who was holding her arm as he drove in his truck, then run over when he let her go and she fell onto the road, following a dispute between the two, allegedly over money.
At about 9 p.m. July 9 Manchester Police responded to the Rite Aid parking lot, 270 Mammoth Road where they met with the woman, 33, who had been found in the street, north of Valley Street and west of the parking lot.
Police say the victim, whose name was not released, was conscious and able to give the following account of the incident to police:
The victim said she knew the driver of the vehicle and claimed they had a dispute, which prompted an argument. She stated she had known the man for a short period of time and described him as 6 feet tall. She told police they had an argument over money while she stood outside the truck on the driver’s side and that at some point in the argument, the man allegedly grabbed her hand in an attempt to take the cash. While doing so, he allegedly sped off as he held on to her hand, which ultimately caused her to be dragged across a portion of the parking lot. Ultimately, she fell from the truck and believes she was actually run over by the rear wheel of the pick-up truck.
Witnesses at scene told police they heard a woman screaming moments before a vehicle described as a pick-up truck, operated by a white male, fled the scene at a high rate of speed. The vehicle in question was last seen traveling south on Mammoth Road and westerly on Valley Street.
Police are following several leads and actively investigating. No other information was immediately available.
