Truck rolls over man in Lee County

Posted:

Lee County Sheriff's Office said one man had to be air-lifted after his truck rolled over him.

Sheriff James A. Sholl said 45-year-old Bradley Dale Shipley of Burlington was towing a piece of construction equipment heading west on Hwy 16 when it came loose from his pickup truck going uphill.

Sholl said Shipley got out to stop the equipment, but didn't put the truck in park. The truck started rolling backwards and Sholl said Shipley tried to stop the truck, but it rolled over him.

Sholl said Shipley had multiple injuries and was flown by Med Force to the University Hospital in Iowa City.

The accident is under investigation.
