Man crushed by garbage truck while crossing the street

Removing the trash from a city as large as New York requires a small army of sanitation trucks. These garbage trucks are generally extremely large, may be nearly full, and may have drivers on a tight schedule.

In one recent tragic accident, a man in his mid-20s died after being hit by a garbage truck. Police are investigating the accident.
