Garbage Trucks Killing Pedestrians

At our February 28th council meeting, a resident in Visitor Presentations asked “Has anybody been run over by a garbage truck? No.”

I'm aware of at least one Maplewood fatality involving a pedestrian killed by a garbage truck. Apparently it's not an unknown occurrence, to judge from a recent tweet from the National Solid Waste Management Association:

Five people were killed last week in five separate accidents involving garbage trucks. Please be careful on the route!!!!!!
