BROCKTON, Mass. (AP) - Authorities say a woman was run over and killed by a tow truck on a garage ramp in Brockton.

The Enterprise reports (https://bit.ly/1uHMgI5) the Plymouth district attorney’s office had said earlier Tuesday the victim was a man, but later said the unidentified person was determined to be a woman.

Police said the victim was found naked from the waist on a ramp inside a garage on Frederick Douglass Avenue after being struck just after 11 p.m. Monday.

A tow truck driver was backing the flatbed truck down a ramp into the garage when the person was run over. Mayor Bill Carpenter said indications are that the victim was already lying on the ramp.

The tow truck is owned by a service station that uses the private parking garage.



No charges have been filed.
