ROCKY HILL, CT (WFSB) -

A woman was seriously injured after being hit by a truck in a shopping plaza in Rocky Hill on Wednesday afternoon.

The crash was reported in the parking lot at 80 Town Line Rd., which is the Stop & Shop plaza, around noon

The victim was a woman between 50 and 60 years old. She was hospitalized with serious injuries, according to police.

Police said the woman was hit by a home improvement truck and was dragged toward the back of the truck.

"She was pinned underneath the vehicle," said Rocky Hill Police Lt. Brian Klett, who added that the woman had significant upper body injuries.

The crash remains under investigation.

This isn't the first time someone was hit by a car in the area. Four years ago, two people were pinned under a car after a driver was backing out of a parking space in the lot. One of them died.

"This isn't our first incident in this intersection but it's busy plaza; these aren't uncommon for close calls," Klett said.

Police are looking at surveillance video of the crash. They said the truck driver is cooperating.

Eyewitness News reached out to the driver's company but calls have not yet been returned.
