WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — A man was struck and killed by a trash truck in Northwest D.C. Monday afternoon.

The accident occurred shortly after 2 p.m. near the intersection of 14th Street and Columbia Road — a short distance from the Columbia Heights Metro station.

Witnesses told 9NewsNow the truck was in an alley and traveling in reverse when it struck the man.

As of 6 p.m the body of the victim had not yet been moved. The medical examiner’s office wanted to wait to examine the body given the accident location’s close proximity to a daycare center where young children were gathered.

Police have not yet made the identity of the victim public.

All-News 99.1 WNEW will update the story as it develops.
