ROSLYN - A sanitation worker from Uniondale was killed Friday morning in an unusual accident.

The incident occurred on Northern Boulevard in Roslyn.

Nassau police say Randolph Skakel got out of his garbage truck to pick up trash when the unoccupied truck started rolling.

The 55-year-old tried to jump into the passenger side of the cab just as the truck sideswiped a utility pole.
Officials say Skakel died at the scene.
