Fayetteville (WSYR-TV) – Police have identified a man who was killed in a dump truck incident at a quarry in Fayetteville on Thursday.
Police say the driver – 49-year-old Terry Johnson of 108 Pleasant St., Manlius – was killed when he and a passenger leapt or fell from the moving dump truck at the Kinsella Quarry.
They say their initial investigation indicates that a possible mechanical failure compelled the two people to jump out of the moving vehicle. The passenger suffered only minor injuries.
