ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A garbage truck struck and killed a 73-year-old Florida man who was walking his dog.
Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Kim Montes said in a news release that the truck backed into James Lear about 7 a.m. Wednesday near Orlando.
Lear died a short time later at a hospital. His dog, who also was hit, is being treated at a veterinary clinic.
Troopers are investigating the crash and Montes says charges are pending.
