Utica (WSYR-TV) – A Herkimer man is dead after an incident at a solid waste facility in Utica on Friday afternoon.

Utica Police say 56-year-old Kelvin Sperry of Osborn Hill Road died as a result of injuries he sustained when he was crushed between a dumpster and a compactor.

Sperry was taken to St. Elizabeth Hospital for treatment, but died as a result of his injuries.

The incident was the second that resulted in loss of life at the facility in eight months.

In January, a Blossvale man was killed when he became pinned under a garbage truck.

Police are still investigating the incident.
