A road sweeper worker in Publix’s parking lot has died after a collision sent him out of the street sweeper truck as it continued to move forward and pass him. authorities said Saturday.

The Florida Highway Patrol said the 57-year-old was not wearing a seat belt. The agency said the driver of the other car was seriously injured.

The truck operator left the parking lot of a Publix supermarket in Brandon, Florida, late Friday to turn the vehicle around and return to the area, authorities said in a news release. Officials said the truck entered the roadway of another vehicle, which hit the side of the sweeper.

The worker was pushed away and then run over by the sweeper.
