Cresco man dragged two blocks by truck


A Cresco man had to be airlifted to a Minnesota hospital after being dragged two blocks by a truck on Monday night.

The Iowa State Patrol says that 56-year-old Anne Ott was backing out of a driveway in the 700 block of 3rd Street East around 6:45 p.m., when she hit 77-year-old Donald Shields who was walking.

Troopers say Shields was dragged two blocks before he was dislodged from the truck.

Shields was taken to the Cresco Medical Clinic before being airlifted to a Rochester, Minnesota hospital.  His condition is unknown.

The accident remains under investigation.
