(KSL News) -- A Heber City man died Thursday morning when his garbage truck crashed in front of a Catholic Church in Summit County.

The 25-year old man was driving on White Pine Canyon Road, north of Park City, when he radioed his employers, BFI Waste Services that his brakes were out.

Troopers say it appears the man steered the runaway truck off the road and into the landscaping of St. Mary's Catholic Church to avoid hitting other cars on Highway 224.
