Amarillo, Texas - It was a close call Thursday afternoon when a man sleeping in a dumpster was nearly crushed by a city trash truck.
It happened around 1:00 between Fillmore and Pierce on 6th street just north of downtown. Police at the scene tell us a man believed to be a transient was asleep inside the dumpster when the truck was emptying the bin. They say the driver heard the man scream and went to check on him.
