Fatal dump truck accident under investigation in Fayetteville

Police are investigating a dump truck accident that killed a Manlius man at the T.H. Kinsella Quarry in Fayetteville.

Police say 49-year-old Terry Johnson died as a result of the accident.

There was another passenger involved in the accident who was able to exit the truck. The passenger suffered minor injuries.

Police say Johnson either jumped or fell from a moving dump truck. A preliminary investigation suggests that there may have been a mechanical problem that caused both the driver and passenger to attempt to exit the moving truck.

The dump truck, police say, was a privately owned 1957 Studebaker.

The investigation is continuing.
