Update: Here is a link to the Sarah Ewing GoFundMe page, to help offset the costs of the funeral. 

GoLocalWorcesterLate Thursday evening, a 24-year-old woman was killed in Kelley Square when she was pinned down by the rear wheels of a tractor trailer. The victim of the accident has been identified as Sarah Ewing of Hudson.

Ewing was freed from the wheels of the truck and transported to a hospital. She was in critical condition at the scene of the accident and was pronounced dead at the hospital. 

According to a Worcester Police Department press release, “the preliminary investigation indicates that the tractor trailer was traveling east on Millbury Street approaching Kelley Square. Apparently the truck had pulled to the right side of the road to let a Worcester fire truck pass by. After the firetruck passed the tractor trailer entered Kelley Square and attempted to turn right. The tractor trailer was attempting to head in the direction of the onramps to Route 290. At this time the truck cut the turn too close to the side of the road. As a result the trailer portion hit a light pole. The impact caused the light pole to fall. Standing near the light pole was the female victim and a male victim. As the pole fell it forced the two towards the truck as it was in the process of turning. The female was run over by the rear two wheels of the trailer. She was pinned in-between the two wheels until fire rescue freed her. The male suffered a serious foot injury when one of the tires ran over his foot. The identity and the age of the male victim are unknown at this time. His injuries are considered non-life threatening.”

Sarah Ewing

This is such a tragic, tragic story. Someone put it best yesterday when they said it was like something out of Final Destination. Sarah Ewing did nothing wrong and it seems as if there was nothing she could’ve done differently. Just a terrible, terrible situation all around.

I didn’t know Sarah Ewing and I know nothing about her. But Turtleboy Sports would like to do something to help offset the costs of the funeral, or help in any other manner we can. Did you know Sarah Ewing? Can you direct us towards the people we would need to contact in order to figure out how we can be of use? We’d like to start a GoFundMe page immediately and link it to whatever account goes directly to help this family get through this awful tragedy. We have over 13,000 followers on social media and would like to start using this audience as a force for good. Please email us at [email protected] or DM us on Facebook if you can point us in the right direction.

God bless Sarah Ewing and her family.

    Contact Brenna Ewing, Blais Aldridge, or Tyler Rollock on Facebook. They are her surviving mother and brothers.

    I believe Sarah lived at 227 Pleasant St in Berlin. Her mother’s name is Brenna.

    Set up a GoFundMe page for it and post a blog about it. People will be able to donate with their credit card.

      As John says. Let the community show what it can do. Just make sure to plug it like no tomorrow, and tell people to share on Facebook.
