LEWISTON – Police said a tractor trailer truck backed over a sleeping man this morning in Lewiston.
Christopher Powell, 42, was underneath the trailer when the driver fired up the truck and began backing up.
The driver, Michael Colume, 61, was leaving LePage Bakery when he heard screaming. He stopped the truck and found Powell under it.
Police said it’s possible Powell, who’s from Arizona, is homeless, which is why he was sleeping under the trailer. He was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
