A Mamaroneck town worker was killed this morning in an accident at the town's highway department/recycling yard.

Larchmont Mayor Joshua L. Mandell said the worker was struck by a truck. Mandell said that the facility would normally be closed for Veterans Day, however, town workers were using the day to do leaf pick up.

The facility is operated by the Larchmont-Mamaroneck Joint Sanitation Commission, which oversees the recycling and garbage/rubbish collection service for the residents of Mamaroneck and the Village of Larchmont.

The accident took place before 7:30 a.m. and is under investigation.
