    State police say a central Pennsylvania woman is dead after her husband accidentally ran over her with a pontoon boat trailer he was pulling with his pickup.

    Troopers say the incident happened early Saturday in Juniata Township, Huntingdon County.
     
    They're not releasing her husband's name, but police say the dead woman is 53-year-old Jill Skethway.

    Police say the couple was trying to keep water from gathering in the boat during heavy rains. As Skethway's husband tried to move the boat, he was unaware that she had crawled underneath to avoid the rain herself.

    Police say no alcohol or drugs were involved in the incident.
