Cedar Hill, TX - A Cedar Hill man driving a city of Dallas garbage truck was killed Monday when he lost control on South Central Expressway and the truck rolled over on him, Dallas police said.

Lawrence Marks, 60, died at Parkland Memorial Hospital after the crash occurred just before 7 p.m. in the 7600 block of southbound Central in east Oak Cliff, police said.

The truck spun out when Marks hit the brakes hard and veered to the right before rolling backward and flipping into a grass ditch. 

Marks was ejected from the driver's side and the truck rolled over him onto its top, police said.
