Trucker who left cab to urinate killed by lurching vehicle

BOSTON (Reuters) - A trucker who stepped outside his tractor trailer to urinate was killed when the vehicle lurched forward and struck him alongside a Vermont highway on Friday, police said.

Reginald Bailey, 70, of Lebanon, New Hampshire, was run over and dragged several feet by the slow moving tractor trailer, according to Vermont state police. The truck then barreled across the highway lanes and down an embankment.

Bailey had pulled over and stepped outside in front of the vehicle to urinate when the accident occurred, police said.

He was pronounced dead at the Central Vermont Medical Center, authorities said. Police said the incident remained under investigation and the truck was being inspected.
