Armored car. vs. a pedestrian. It was a scary scene in New Port Richey, Florida, last week.

According to Pasco County Fire Rescue, a pedestrian was struck by an armored vehicle as she was walking across a parking lot around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.

The woman’s legs were pinned under the metal step of the truck on the driver’s side door, firefighters said.

Firefighters “worked quickly” to free the woman, who was listed as a trauma alert, said Pasco Fire Rescue spokesperson Corey Dierdorff. Authorities did not identify her.

Her condition Friday was unclear.
