Utah Woman Receives $300,000 After Being Run Over by Police Truck

April 2, 2008

An Ogden, Utah woman who was run over by a police truck in 2006 when a police dog nudged it into gear will get $300,000.

Mary Frances Stone was walking to her mailbox and suffered fractures to her pelvis when the truck hit her.

Stone says the compensation is less than the $580,000 she originally requested from the city’s insurance carrier. The 43-year-old says she feels like police officers get away with hurting people.

Police say Officer Taylor Finder was responding to a nearby house when the dog knocked the pickup truck’s transmission into gear. Finder was not disciplined afterward.
