Washington City Police responded upon report of the injury at approximately 6:15 p.m.

For an unknown mechanical reason, the white Ford F-150 would not go into reverse and the man was attempting to push it out of a parking stall, Washington City Police Public Information Officer Ed Kantor said.

Another individual was at the wheel in the truck while the man attempted to push it, Kantor said.

“It appears that he slipped on something there on the ground and the truck rolled forward and pinned him against a block wall,” he added.

Gold Cross Ambulance emergency medical responders carefully tended to the injured man as a stretcher was prepared for transport to Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George.

The man produced audible groans as EMS worked to remove him from the site of the incident. The extent of the man’s injuries was unknown at the time of this report.

The incident was clearly unintentional, Kantor said, and no enforcement action has been taken.

This report is based on preliminary information provided by law enforcement or other emergency responders and may not contain the full scope of findings.
