BURLINGTON, N.C. — A man who suffered a head injury after falling off a moving vehicle had been attempting to hold down mattresses that were on the roof of the vehicle, Burlington police said. Police said Timothy Lee Walker, 48, struck his head and was lying in the street when officers arrived at the scene at North Ireland Street and Virginia Avenue on Tuesday. Walker fell from the vehicle when the driver of the 1996 Ford Explorer, Stella Thomas, 42, rounded a curve, causing the mattresses to slide off the roof, police said. Walker was taken by helicopter to a hospital in Chapel Hill. His latest medical condition wasn’t known, police said. Police said no charges have been filed, but the investigation hasn’t been completed. May we suggest bungee cords next time?
