Greenville worker killed on job

Greenville – A City of Greenville employee was killed Tuesday morning in an accident at a landfill near Campbell. 34 year old Wastewater Operator David Gann of Lone Oak was pinned between a dump truck and a bulldozer after dumping a load of sludge at the Republic/Maloy Landfill. According to officials, Gann's truck had become stuck at the landfill and the bulldozer was being used to pull the truck free, and Gann somehow became pinned between the two vehicles as he went to unhook the tow chain.

Gann was pronounced dead at the scene. The Hunt County Sheriff's Department is handling the investigation. Services are pending.
