Garbage truck fatally runs over man in the Bronx

An elderly man was fatally struck by a garbage truck in a grisly Bronx accident Friday, cops and witnesses said.

The victim was crossing East 152nd Street near Jackson Avenue when he was hit by the truck at 8:14 p.m., cops said.

Neighbors said they implored the driver to stop but the operator backed up and ran the 70-year-old man over a second time.

The victim suffered fatal head injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

“People were screaming for the guy driving the truck to stop,” witness Jessica Wiscovitch said.

“That’s when he backed up and hit him again. It was a horrific scene.”

The driver of the private garbage truck stayed at the scene.

No charges were filed Friday night.
