Police: woman run over by tractor-trailer had been drinking
DOVER, Del. (AP) — Police say a Delaware woman found dead in a yard was run over by a tractor-trailer after she fell asleep in front of the rig.
Dover police on Tuesday identified the woman as 58-year-old Pamela Guy.
Authorities say investigators learned that Guy was known to drink heavily and often sleep in random spots in the neighborhood.
On Sunday, Guy had been drinking and helping the operator of the tractor-trailer wash his vehicle. Later that night, Guy went back to the area and fell asleep in front of the tractor-trailer.
When the operator, a52-year-old Dover man, left for work Monday morning, he ran over Guy.
