LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A tow truck driver is recovering in the hospital after a freak accident at a local car dealership.

It happened Thursday morning around 10:30 at Paul Miller Ford on New Circle Road near Winchester Road.

Witnesses say a driver for Dargavell's Towing and Recovery out of Richmond was unloading a car from the bed of the truck when the winch failed, causing the car to roll backwards.

Witnesses say the tow truck driver tried to stop the car's momentum by jumping inside, but it was too late and the car ended up rolling over the driver's leg.

Witnesses tell us the tow truck driver mainly suffered leg injuries and he was taken to UK Hospital.

Authorities have not released the victim's name.
