Woman dies in accident involving garbage truck

Posted:

A city employee is killed while on the job.

It happened around 3:30 Wednesday afternoon at Meriwether Avenue near Metro Solid Waste Management.

Police tell us 51-year-old Darlene Brown had just ended her shift with the sanitation department when she stepped in front of a garbage truck in the sanitation parking lot.

That driver apparently didn't see her and ran over her.

An autopsy is planned for Thursday.
