Police are searching for the driver of a pickup truck who they say dragged a woman early Saturday morning in Worcester, Massachusetts.
Officers responded to an area of High Street at 6:30 a.m. where they found a 31-year-old woman laying in middle of the roadway.
The victim was taken to a local hospital to be treated for a broken ankle, collapsed lung, and minor brain bleeding. Police said she is currently in stable condition.
Authorities said an initial investigation revealed that the victim was speaking with the driver of a black pickup truck in the parking lot of the BP gas station on Chandler Street. At some point, the truck took off at a high rate of speed with the woman holding onto the driver’s side window. As the truck continued up High Street, the woman allegedly fell off of the truck and into the middle of the street.
Police are now trying to identify the driver of the truck. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Worcester Police at 508-799-8600 or send an anonymous text to 274637 TIPWPD + your message.
