Wo­man, 77, in­jured as camper trailer rolls over her

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

A 77-year-old wo­man is in hos­pi­tal with se­ri­ous in­juries af­ter a camper trailer rolled down a drive­way at a west Moun­tain res­i­dence and pulled her un­der.

The trailer started mov­ing down the drive­way just as the wo­man’s friend went into the garage for a wheel chock.

The wo­man was help­ing her friend with his pickup truck and trailer on Bren­lyn Court when he went into the garage for a chock to wedge un­der its right wheel just be­fore 2 p.m. Monday.

“The fe­male ran af­ter the truck in an at­tempt to get into the cab, but was pulled un­der the trailer and run over by the trailer’s tan­dem wheels,” po­lice said in a news re­lease Tues­day.

The trailer kept rolling and crashed into a parked car.

Paramedics took the wo­man to hos­pi­tal.

Po­lice said Tues­day she re­mains in “sta­ble con­di­tion with se­ri­ous, non-life-threat­en­ing in­juries.”

Po­lice have ruled out speed, al­co­hol and foul play as fac­tors but say “the mat­ter is not con­cluded.”

The col­li­sion re­con­struc­tion unit con­tin­ues to in­ves­ti­gate the mishap.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to call Det. Const. Matt Hewko 905-546-4755.
