Henry C. Wallech, 48, of 222 Norway Ave., was pronounced dead at 10:59 a.m., Franklin County Coroner Jeffrey R. Conner said.
Conner said an autopsy was to be performed today at the Lehigh Valley Medical Center in Allentown, Pa.
Wallech was a helper on a truck owned by BFI Inc. of Williamsport, Md., Conner said. When the accident occurred he had been standing between a BFI truck and another owned by Waste Management as they unloaded in the dumping area of the landfill.
"For unknown reasons, he ended up under the (Waste Management) truck as the truck pulled forward," Conner said.
Wallech was run over by the rear wheels on the driver's side of the truck.
