WGIL Newsroom . State News 262

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — A central Illinois woman was hurt after being run over by a pickup truck while she was sunbathing.

The State Journal-Register in Springfield reports that 23-year-old Amanda Clark of Loami was sunbathing near a Lake Springfield boat launch on Saturday when the accident happened.

The truck’s driver was 48-year-old James Mordacq of Springfield. He told police he was looking at the lake while negotiating the curve off a sailboat launch when he accidentally ran over the lower part of Clark’s body. No citations were issued.

The newspaper reported that Clark was in serious condition at Memorial Medical Center on Saturday.

A hospital spokeswoman said Sunday that she could not release any information because of patient privacy laws.
