UPDATE: Woman stable after being hit by truck

GLASGOW — A woman who was hit after trying to stop her truck that was left in gear is in stable condition at the University of Louisville Hospital.

Stephanie L. Cates, 37, of Glasgow, was hit Monday about 2 p.m. in the parking lot of the Houchens Market on East Main Street, according to police on the scene.

Witnesses said Cates had pulled the white Dodge pickup she was driving up to the drink machines in front of Houchens. When she got out, the vehicle started traveling backward through the parking lot. Cates ran after the vehicle and opened the driver's side door in an attempt to stop the truck, according to a Glasgow Police Department release.

The driver's side door knocked the victim to the ground, witnesses said, and the truck ran her over. She sustained multiple injuries to her chest and torso, according to Capt. David Graves of the GPD.

After hitting Cates, the vehicle continued backward, making a sharp left turn and striking a 2011 Black Ford pickup which was parked and unoccupied. The collision caused damage to the left tail light and back of the Ford, according to the GPD release.

Cates was transported by the Barren-Metcalfe Emergency Medical Service to the Glasgow Municipal Airport where she was flown by Air Methods to the U of L Hospital. She is in stable condition as of Wednesday morning, according to hospital officials.
