The accident happened on Friday, August 17th in Hoover, Alabama.
According to police investigations, 56-year-old driver Anthony Fidel Martin stopped his 2015 Freightliner in the parking lot of the Home Depot off of Highway 280 to “perform a task” when his big rig began to roll.
Evidence suggests he tried to get back in the cab to stop it, but either tripped or fell off the running board and got caught underneath the truck. It rolled over the victim and came to rest after striking a shopping cart corral in the parking lot,” read the Hoover Police Department’s report according to WVTM 13 News.
