CALICO ROCK, Ark.-A sanitation worker has died while working at a northern Arkansas elementary school.

The Baxter Bulletin reports that 48-year-old Steve Allen died Wednesday after a dumpster fell on him as he emptied it into his garbage truck. A Calico Rock Public School employee found the Methvin Sanitation employee unconscious at the campus.

Izard County Chief Deputy Earnie Blackley says the investigation is ongoing but no foul play is suspected.
