GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) — Greenville officials say a city sanitation worker died after a garbage truck ran over him.

The county coroner’s office says 22-year-old Bruce Gordon III died of blunt force trauma to the head.

Mike Murphy of the city’s public works department says Gordon was on the back of a garbage truck about 9 a.m. Friday as it backed up. Murphy says the worker somehow tripped and was trapped underneath.
