PONTOTOC, Miss (WTVA) A Waste Management employee is dead after he was run over by a truck at work.  

It happened around 8:30 Friday morning at the Pontotoc Landfill.  

Sheriff Leo Mask says 50 year old Bobby Williams was talking on his cell phone, as he walked toward the truck he'd driven to the landfill.  

He says an 18-wheeler arrived at the landfill and backed over Williams.

Deputies are still investigating exactly how Williams died.  

Pontotoc County Coroner Kim Bedford sent Williams' body to Jackson for an autopsy.
