A brief on a terrible way to die, courtesy of the Springfield Police Department:
At approximately 0300 this morning, the Springfield Police Department responded to a reported motor vehicle crash involving a person falling off of a trash truck. The crash occurred in the 1600 block of north Schoolcraft (US 65), just north of Division. A trash truck belonging to American Allied Waste was northbound, entering Schoolcraft from the Division street on-ramp. The driver was startled by a person banging on the truck’s roof and windshield and he suddenly braked. A woman on top of the truck was thrown forward and run over by the truck. She was determined to be deceased at the scene.

The preliminary investigation indicates that the woman may have been in a dumpster that the trash truck picked up and emptied into the truck’s waste container body.
Moral of the story: Don't sleep in dumpsters.

Moral of the story, kids:

If you go out and get trashed, it can be fatal.
