Snoqualmie worker left with broken legs after being hit by a truck

A miscommunication between co-workers led to an injury resulting two broken legs last week. At 6:20 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 9, a man fell as he was getting into a truck on the corner of Stone Quarry Road and S.R. 202 in Snoqualmie, when he fell from the truck. The other man reversed the truck, not realizing his co-worker was trying to get in, and ran over the man’s legs.

Snoqualmie Police Captain Nick Almquist said the driver thought his co-worker was going to get into another vehicle. The man, in his 40s or 50s, tried to open the passenger side door, but once the truck began to move he fell and both of his legs were run over.

Almquist said his injuries were non-life threatening and the man was taken to Harborview Medical Center.
