Truck backs over worker's leg

A Wilmore sanitation worker was injured Thursday morning after a garbage truck accidentally backed over his leg, police said.

Wilmore city employee Brandon Creech suffered a broken femur following the incident that happened at 9:20 a.m., said Wilmore Police Chief Steve Boven.

Creech apparently fell off the truck as it backed up on Scott Street, a dead-end street, Boven said. Another worker yelled for the driver to stop but the truck ran over Creech's leg.

Creech was treated at University of Kentucky Hospital, where he was listed in fair condition Thursday afternoon.

Boven said Kentucky State Police will investigate since the incident involves a city employee.
