Woman pinned under car in Mesa

MESA -- A woman died after being pinned under her father's truck Tuesday night in Mesa.

According to Mesa police, Ronald Mortensen, 53, had stopped his Ford F250 to drop off his daughter and visit with some friends near 32nd Street and Southern Avenue.

A fire started at a nearby home and Mortensen backed up his truck toward the fire as his 21-year-old daughter stepped out into the street to get a better view, according to Mesa police Detective Diana Tapia. Mortensen drove over his daughter and then stopped.

Ashley Mortensen was trapped under the rear of the truck until fire crews arrived.

The woman was transported to Scottsdale Osborn where she was pronounced dead.

Tapia said the father was evaluated by officers and no impairment was found. No criminal charges are pending.
