Elderly Seneca man killed in collision involving a trash truck

Updated at 2:25 PM CST:  An elderly Seneca, Missouri man is dead after an early morning collision.

Seneca Police Chief James Altic says the man killed in the accident was John Burton, 74.

Chief Altic says apparently Burton's vehicle stalled on the road, or rolled out of his driveway, crossing both lanes, at about 4:15 this morning at the intersection of Osage and Cemetery Road. Burton then left his vehicle, a dark maroon truck, and went around to the outside of the passenger's side. That is when a trash truck collided with Burton's vehicle, pinning and killing him.

Chief Altic says the trash truck was not going very fast but had just came over a very steep grade and the driver didn't see Burton's vehicle until it was too late. Altic says the driver of the trash truck did attempt to stop, there just wasn't enough time.

Altic says the Missouri Highway Patrol Crash Team was called in from Springfield to reconstruct the crash.

Posted January 29, 2013 at 12:22 PM CST:  The Missouri  Highway Patrol is investigating a fatal accident that occurred morning in Seneca.

Both MHP and the Seneca police chief confirmed an elderly man died from injuries sustained after he was struck by a trash truck.

The man's name has not been released pending notification of next of kin.
