TOOELE — A 5-year-old boy on a bike was killed Friday when he was hit by a garbage truck.
The boy was riding a bike with his sister near their home on McKellar Street about 1 p.m., police said. The boy rode into the side of the truck as it turned right and was dragged under the truck's rear wheels. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
"They have a pretty good rapport with the garbage truck driver and waved to him. It's not too uncommon for them to do this routine," said Tooele Police Capt. Paul Wimmer.
A family spokesman said the boy, Giacomo Riley Kelly, was helpful and funny. He would have celebrated his sixth birthday on Father's Day.
