Mom Says Naked Woman in Truck Crash Was Raped
NORCO ( KTLA) — There are conflicting stories over what led to a naked woman’s high speed crash into a driving school while a man rode in the truck bed.
Witnesses say the woman drove at high speed through the intersection of 4th St. and Hamner Ave. at 5:00 a.m. Sunday with a man in the back of the truck.
The unidentified woman lost control of the truck, drove through a horse trail fence, through a strip mall parking lot and crashed into the front of a driving school office.
The woman, who witnesses say was naked, staggered out of the truck and collapsed with facial and other critical injuries.
The man told firefighters and investigators that he was in the bed of the truck trying to stop the woman.
He was treated at a hospital and released with minor injuries.
The woman remains hospitalized, reportedly in very critical condition.
The woman’s mother saw the story on KTLA and called the station to say her daughter hitchhiked, had been beaten and raped and was fleeing for her life.
However, the Riverside County sheriff’s website says the man stopped to help the woman. The woman then got into the driver’s seat of the truck and drove off at high speed with the man hanging on in the truck bed.
So far, there have been no arrests in the incident.
Deputies say they will interview the woman as soon as she is physically stable enough to be questioned.
