Woman Dies Trying To Stop Runaway Truck

Police say a Crosslake woman has died after she tried to stop a rolling pickup truck that her 2-year old nephew was in.

Police Chief Bob Hartman says the 32-year old was killed on Thursday.  The toddler was not hurt.

Hartman says the boy was playing inside the pickup when the truck began rolling backward down a hill.  The woman jumped on the truck's running board and was reaching inside to put it in park when the vehicle sideswiped a large tree.

The woman got caught between the truck and the tree.  A witness and emergency responders performed CPR but the woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

The victim's name has not been released.
