A soldier from Joint Base Lewis-McChord is recovering from a bizarre accident in Tacoma.
Police said the 22-year-old man was lying in the middle of North Fife Street when a Tacoma Police officer accidentally drove over him at 1:20 Saturday morning.
The officer called for medical aid, and the man was taken to Madigan Army Medical Center in critical condition.
Officer Loretta Cool said the officer was patrolling at a slow speech, checking plates and looking for prowlers, when the crash happened.
Cool was not sure why the man was lying in the roadway to begin with.
