An Owensboro woman suffered a severe foot injury after being run over by a pickup truck in the Jumpin Jacks parking lot on June 23. The accident happened at approximately 4 p.m. Hancock County Sheriff’s Deputy Jeff Hendrick filed the accident report.
Hendrick wrote in his report that as Patricia Buchanan walked towards the front door of Jumpin Jacks in Lewisport from the gas pump area, a 2005 Ford F-150 pickup truck driven by David A. Jackson of Fordsville, KY did not see her due to the sun’s glare, and struck Mrs. Buchanan with the front passenger side of his truck. The vehicle then ran over Mrs. Buchanan’s ankle.
Hancock County EMS provided first aid at the scene. Later, Hancock County EMS transported Mrs. Buchanan to Perry County Memorial Hospital for additional treatment.
The pickup truck sustained very minor damage. It did not require a tow.
