Garbage truck runs over man who fell out of dumpster

Transient trash death

OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma City Police said a man who was hit by a car Friday morning was a transient who was sleeping in a dumpster.

Police said a waste management truck was emptying the dumpster and the man, whose name has not been released, fell out onto the ground. 

The truck ended up running over the man who they said they never knew was there because of a curb the truck has to back over. 

Police said no charges or tickets are expected in what appears to be a tragic accident.
