Auburn police say a woman who was ticketed in a parking lot for theft early Thursday was run over by a truck less than an hour later in the same lot.
Police say the tractor-trailer ran over 33-year-old Kassandra Lavoie of Mechanic Falls at 1:11 a.m.
Officers had responded to the parking lot less than an hour before the accident after a report of a suspicious person. They found Lavoie, who was a suspect in a Lewiston theft.
Police released her after issuing summonses for theft and unlawful use or possession of inhalants.
Police identified the driver of the tractor trailer as 40-year-old Hasan Williams of Pennsylvania.
The accident remains under investigation.
