At about 10:00 a.m. on Friday morning the Stanton County Sheriff’s office responded to and investigated an accident in the 1000 block of Ivy Street in Stanton.
Injured when she was trying to re-enter her vehicle and it slipped in gear was Judy Bates, 61, of Stanton. Bates was knocked to the ground and it appears the vehicle ran over her leg(s) and continued across Ivy Street and came to rest after striking a brick building across the street.
