On Monday morning, shortly after 7 a.m., a sanitation worker was fatally struck by a vehicle while on the job in the Town of Oyster Bay.

Steven Giacobello, 45, of Westbury was on West Main Street in Oyster Bay emptying trash into the truck and was struck when he was walking back to the driver’s side of the truck, according to police.
