A pickup truck hit a woman in a parking lot in Glen Burnie on Monday, sending the woman to to the Shock Trauma Center in critical condition, according to Anne Arundel County police.
Shortly after 1:15 p.m. Monday, a 2000 GMC pickup driving in reverse in a parking lot on the 7500 block of Ritchie Highway struck a female pedestrian, according to police.
The collision lodged the woman underneath the truck, and the driver pulled the woman out with assistance from another person. Police said they began CPR on the woman and called 911.
An ambulance transported the woman with life-threatening injuries to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, where she is now listed in critical but stable condition.
Police said an initial investigation suggests "improper backing" might have been a contributing factor to the collision. Drugs and alcohol were not a factor in the collision.
