Landfill accident claims one life
01/04/2019

(KAIR)--A Lawrence, Kansas man is identified as the victim of a fatal Friday morning accident at a Jefferson County landfill.

According to the report issued by the Kansas Highway Patrol, 59-year-old Mark Wilson was killed around 7:10 at the Hamm Waste Services Landfill, located along U.S. Highway 24, near Lawrence.

According to the Patrol, Wilson died after he was pinned between a semi-trailer and a tipper, which is a machine used to dump waste into the landfill.

The semi was backing onto the tipper when Wilson, who was the tipper operator, was between the truck and the dock. The semi pinned him against the dock, causing his fatal injuries.

The semi, at the landfill to dump trash, was driven by a 29-year-old Beloit, Kansas man.
