Three Killed After Being Hit by Tractor-Trailer

During the investigation, officers learned that the pedestrian, identified as Joshua Mullis, was between a truck, trailer, and the loading dock while the tractor was backing up.

Mullis was hit by the trailer and briefly pinned between the trailer and the loading dock.

He was taken to a nearby hospital but died from his injuries. The driver of the tractor was not hurt in the incident.

Mullis was a veteran who served one tour in Saudi Arabia. He was also a father of three, and his wife is expecting their 4th child in September. She said his last words to her were how much he loved her. Friends of the family started a GoFundMe page to raise money for his wife and children. They hope to be able to raise $15,000.
