You can’t be too careful when you’re working around cars.  A man helping a girl get out of ditch by Streator was accidentally run-over by the girl.

La Salle County Sheriff’s Deputies say it happened Friday night on East 20th Road after Abigail Wakeman of Streator got her car stuck in a ditch.  Police say Dustin Hall of Streator and another friend were able to pull Wakeman’s car out using tow straps and a pick-up truck.  But while Hall was on the ground removing the tow strips, he was run over by Wakeman who didn’t see him.

Hall was taken to by ambulance to St. Mary’s Hospital.  No one was ticketed.
