On 11/19/2013 at approximately 1920 hrs. Fife Police were dispatched to a report of a semi truck vs. pedestrian accident at a local truck stop in the 1500 block of Port of Tacoma Rd. Officers arrived and found a 60 year old male trapped between his pickup truck and the rear axle of the semi trailer. A tow truck was needed to pull the vehicles apart so that fire personnel could administer aid. The male was transported to the hospital with serious injuries.
Detectives and members of the Pierce Metro Collision Response Team are investigating the incident and believe that the victim was attempting to get air into one of his vehicles tires when he was struck.
