Garbage Truck Accident Fatally Injures 5 Year Old
A commercial waste management truck rolled over Harris Nyumah, a 5-year-old who came from Liberia 3 years ago, and killed him instantly. The garbage truck accident occurred at about 11 a.m., on Thursday morning, near the intersection of 51st Ave. N and Ewing Ave. N.
Harris had been playing outside. He darted after his ball as it rolled into the street. The garbage truck was backing up and the driver could not see the boy.
The boy died at the scene and his body was taken to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s office. The garbage truck accident is still under investigation. The driver of the garbage truck is cooperating fully with the investigation and is said to be devastated. “At this point, I don’t anticipate any charges, but things could always change,” Commander Mike Reynolds said.
