Man under truck killed when vehicle goes into reverse

PIKESVILLE -- A man was killed yesterday when a dump truck he was lubricating outside his home went into reverse and a wheel crushed his chest.

Donald Bull, 52, of the first block of Dreher Ave. was lubricating the 1988 Ford's left front wheel assembly about 3: 35 p.m. when he told his 20-year-old son to start the engine so he could turn the wheel, said Traffic Officer William Pumphrey.

Apparently unaware that the truck's gear was in reverse, Chris Bull, who lives with his father, started the truck, and it lurched backward, the wheel crushing the elder Bull's chest, Pumphrey said. The owner of Donald L. Bull Trucking died at 4: 19 p.m. at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore.
