Unoccupied 18-Wheeler Kills Man in Charlotte, North Carolina

June 12, 2019

Charlotte, North Carolina – On June 11, 2019, a 57-year-old man was killed when an unoccupied 18-wheeler ran him over.

Reports indicate that Lynn Patterson “had just finished loading a skid steer onto a trailer when the attached tractor began rolling backwards down the medium grade incline upon which it was parked.”

At this time, it is unclear what caused the unoccupied 18-wheeler to roll backwards.  The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department officers, State Highway Patrol troopers, and investigators from the North Carolina Department of Labor are investigating the death.

The rig ran over Patterson near a home construction site in the 18300 block of Bessbrook Road.

The 18-wheeler accident attorneys at Morrow & Sheppard LLP are monitoring this incident and will provide updates as information becomes available.
