(July 28, 2017) An 18-wheeler delivery truck pinned the spotter guiding it backwards between the vehicle and a parked truck on Monday afternoon.

The delivery truck was making a stop in the area of 15th Street around 3 p.m. on Monday, according to police spokeswoman Lindsay Richard.

The spotter was a passenger in the vehicle, and exited the truck to help guide the unidentified driver while the truck backed toward the area where it was to unload.

Unbeknownst to the driver, Richard said, the vehicle ended up sandwiching the spotter between the delivery truck and another parked vehicle. The spotter, also unidentified, was able to extricate himself from the situation, she said.

The spotter was then taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury with non-life threatening injuries.
