'Were we negligent?' asks garbage truck firm
A garbage collection company involved in a fatal accident is asking the court to decide if, and to what degree, it was responsible for the incident.
Richard "Ricky" D. Nelson, 30, 111 N. Fourth St., died Nov. 26, 2008, after hitting the back of a Veolia ES Solid Waste truck. Nelson, who was driving a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee, hit the 2007 Mack garbage truck as it waited in the median of Hwy. 35N and Whitetail Boulevard.
