COOPERSTOWN – As the prosecution’s first witness, truck driver George Borrowdale, recalled seeing Elizabeth Welsh Callahan next to the cab of husband Casey Callahan’s flatbed truck, bending down to tie her shoe.

“I thought to myself ‘That’s a stupid place to tie a shoe,’” he said.

Borrowdale said he was 50 feet from the scene of the accident, refueling his own truck when he saw her being run over by the rear tires of the truck, moving “two or three miles per hour.”
