The Department of Public Safety is investigating an accident north of Longview. The accident occurred at the corner of Mackey Road and Highway 259 just before noon on Friday.
According to DPS troopers, a car trying to pass a garbage truck hit a sanitation worker who was emptying trash from a garbage can. The sanitation worker has been taken to the hospital.
DPS officials say they are getting two conflicting stories about the accident. The driver of the car says the sanitation worker waved him to go by. However, the sanitation worker denies ever waving the driver around.
No one has been ticketed and officials are still interviewing the sanitation worker.
