Briefs: YC woman still in critical condition
A Yuba City woman remained in critical condition Tuesday, two days after she was run over by a semi-trailer truck in Shasta County.
Deronda Gail Harris remains in the Intensive Care Unit at Mercy Medical Center in Redding, authorities said Tuesday.
Harris, 50, suffered life-threatening injuries Sunday afternoon when she was struck by a Freightliner semi-trailer truck driven by her boyfriend, 56-year-old Gregory Dwayne Gross.
It appears Harris was standing behind the truck's sleeper berth by the right rear axles when she was struck, apparently while Gross was making a U-turn while he though Harris was in the restroom at Chevron gas station in Cottonwood, the California Highway Patrol said.
The incident appears accidental and neither drugs nor alcohol were factors, the CHP said.
