An 80-year-old York Township man was struck and dragged by a garbage truck Friday morning, according to a release from York Area Regional Police.

About 8:45 a.m., police were sent to the 2900 block of Woodshed Terrace, where they found Edwin Beck Jr., who lives on that street, lying on the ground.


An investigation showed that Beck was struck by a Penn Waste garbage truck, and he ended up under the truck, police said. He was dragged about 15 feet.

Police say he suffered severe injuries to his right arm and upper body. He was taken to York Hospital.

The garbage truck was inspected by police as part of the investigation. The incident is still under investigation.
