PHOENIX – A suspect who ran away from a traffic stop chose the wrong place to hide when he slipped under a parked moving truck — and then was run over when the driver pulled away.
The Arizona Department of Public Safety said an officer stopped a 26-year-old man in west Phoenix just before 7 a.m. Wednesday after he ran a red light. The man gave the officer his license, then ran away and disappeared behind a convenience store.
As the officer searched for him, the moving truck driver got back in his truck and started to drive away, running over the suspect.
The officer stopped the truck and called help for his suspect, who complained of back pain.
The man had a suspended driver license and warrants for DUI and leaving an accident scene. He'll be booked into jail after treatment.
