    A scooter operator was run over by a truck in Bridgeport.

    A 62-year-old Bridgeport man suffered serious injuries when he was run over by an tractor-trailer around 2 p.m. on Monday, according to police.

    The victim, who was riding a scooter, was struck by a semi that was backing into MJ Metal Inc. in the area of Wordin Avenue and somehow ended up beneath the truck, according to Officer John Perry, a traffic unit investigator.

    The victim was conscious and alert but suffered significant injuries to his pelvis and lower extremities and taken to Bridgeport Hospital, police said.

    Bridgeport police are receiving assistance from Trumbull Police, who have an officer certified in truck inspections.
