The Yell County Sheriff's Office (YCSO) identifies the victim in the Thursday incident as Loyd Dale "Tiger" Bice, Jr., 52.

Sheriff Bill Gilkey says the death is under investigation.

YCSO Chief Deputy John Foster says Bice had been driving a truck for a local trash service. He had reportedly stopped the truck and gotten out to help another worker collect trash at a home when the vehicle apparently rolled over him.
