Man Struck, Killed by FedEx Driver Trying to Avoid Floyd Protest

By    |   Sunday, 31 May 2020 05:26 PM EDT

A man who was hit by a FedEx truck driving away from violent protestors died Sunday, according to KMOV.

The unidentified man was trapped between two trailers of a truck making deliveries in St. Louis when the vehicle veered off the interstate to avoid the protestors.

"I was standing on the side of the pavement and I started to notice a crowd go to the truck, so when I went over there, I heard people say there's a guy trapped under the tire," Jared Arms, who was standing nearby, told KMOV.

Police in St. Louis said the driver had two people with guns pointed at him and didn't know the man was trapped between the trailers. People on the scene, however, dispute that story, saying people surrounded the truck to tell the driver a man was stuck between the trailers.

"With the video you can clearly see the people at the doors are only going up because they were trying to tell him somebody was stuck not to open it and try to beat him up and things like that," Arms added.

FedEx released a statement in response to the incident.

"Our hearts go out to all those who are grieving the events of this week. We are deeply saddened to learn of a tragic situation involving a demonstrator in St. Louis and one of our vehicles. We offer our sincerest condolences to the family of the individual involved. There is no higher priority for FedEx than safety, and we are cooperating fully with the investigating authorities at this time," the company said.
