A former Arkansas sheriff's deputy was killed when a trash truck rolled over him Thursday morning, authorities said.

Loyd Dale Bice, Jr., 52, was driving a truck for a local utilities service, according to a news release from the Yell County sheriff's office.

Chief Deputy John Foster said Bice stopped his vehicle on Arkansas 80 west of Danville about 9:20 a.m. and had exited to assist another worker collecting trash at a home when the truck rolled over him.

The Danville man's death appears to be an accident, according to the sheriff's office.

Bice was a Yell County sheriff's deputy in the early 1990s, the release said.

The sheriff's office and the Yell County coroner are continuing to investigate his death.
