Amarillo, Texas - The case of a man who was nearly crushed to death by a trash truck is ruled an accident.

Amarillo police say they are still unsure how the man ended up inside the dumpster. Last week, a city trash truck driver discovered the man while emptying the dumpster on NW 5th and Fillmore. Investigators say the man's injuries were sustained from being dropped into the truck.

We're told he is out of the hospital making a full recovery.
