(WMC-TV) – One person was killed Wednesday morning in an accident at the Agricenter in Memphis.
According to investigators, Sharon Bailey, 72, was killed when she was struck by a truck at the Agricenter's RV park.
Witnesses said Bailey's husband, Ernest, was trying to hitch an RV trailer to a pickup truck when the truck started rolling. Sharon Bailey tried to jump into the truck to apply the brake.
"The door to the trailer sprung open and apparently struck here and knocked her down," Shelby County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Chip Washington said. "And unfortunately, she was run over by the trailer."
Bailey was from Spring, Texas, and along with her husband was in Memphis visiting family. Living a retired and recreational life, the pair were planning to attend a storytelling festival in Athens, Alabama.
"This is just a terrible, tragic accident," Washington said.
She was declared dead at the scene.
