Man killed in North Country landfill accident

Posted: Updated:

A New York man is dead after a landfill accident in the North Country.

Investigators say 77-year-old Pearly Provo was moving topsoil at the Clinton County Landfill in Morrisonville when there was a problem with his truck. Police say Provo left the cab to check the load had dumped, and that's when heavy, loose dirt fell from the truck burying him.

Witnesses frantically dug him out, but the Salem, New York, man died at the hospital.
