Trash worker crushed by truck

DUMBO, BROOKLYN (PIX11)-Police say 18 year old Louis Camarillo was crushed and killed by a garbage truck while loading it with recycling.

We’re told that Camarillo who lives in the Bronx was working at the time of the accident.

The teen was loading the truck with paper from this recycling plant when the compactor came down on top of him crushing his chest.

Camarillo was rushed to Long Island College Hospital where he died.

Police say the garbage truck that crushed the 18-year-old is privately owned, although it’s not clear right now who owns the truck.

This afternoon police and OSHA officials were out here investigating the scene although right now no criminality is suspected.

      Feel free to drop dead anytime, terrible Ivan. We'll express the apt amount of concern with a spirited celebration.

    There are no such thing as accidents; they can be prevented. This was probably caused by some stupid human.

    When in Dumbo..do as the dumbo's do.. I've never heard of the place, but this is just another reason that you have to be sick, old, disoriented and/or at death's door to be able to appreciate all that NY has to offer.

    How sad. Poor kid. It was probably one of his first jobs and he was glad to have it. Deepest sympathies to his family and loved ones.

    yes very sad( got to be foul play,cant see how it can engage unless somebody engages it and he was in the right area,if he was loading it wouldnt it have come down on his back? seems kinda fishy to me?
