Man Allegedly Dragged By A Pickup Truck Through Troy Streets

Troy Police received a call about 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, July 29, 2012, from the Stewarts Shop on Congress Street and Fifth Avenue, about two men that were arguing. It wasn’t long after that call, when a call went to 9-1-1, about a man being allegedly dragged by a pickup truck through the streets of Troy. This call was actually from the man that was being dragged.

In a story that I saw on News 10 ABC, Robert Kowalik remained on his cell phone with the Rennselaer County dispatcher the entire time that he was being dragged. The incident started at the Stewarts Shop in Troy, and ended at the Walmart on Hoosick Street in Brunswick. Kowalik knew the driver of the truck, Seth Scudds of Raymertown.

When Kawalik finally got himself free at Walmart, Scudds took off. Emergency responders and Troy Police went to the Walmart and saw that Kawalik had scrapes, cuts and possibly may have had his legs run over – None of the injuries were life threatening. He was sent to Albany Medical Center, where his condition wasn’t known.

According to Troy police, it might not be completely Scudd’s fault. The incident is still being investigated. No one was arrested. Troy police would like to know if anyone saw the incident to contact them. Their phone number is 270-4421.
