Burlington Man Hit By His Truck

A Burlington man had to be airlifted to Iowa City today after he was run over by his own truck.

45-year-old Bradley Shipley was driving westbound on Highway 16, about 1/2 mile west of the Highway 61 Junction, when a piece of construction equipment he was towing came loose while driving up the incline on the highway. Shipley got out of the truck, attempting to stop the piece of equipment, failed to put his vehicle in park, and was run over by the truck. Shipley received multiple injuries.
