Police: Cold weather may have lead to street sweeper's death

SOUTHBURY, Conn. (AP) —Friday’s frigid weather may have contributed to the death of a street sweeper whose body was found after an early morning accident in Southbury.  The 47-year-old man’s body was discovered at about 5:30am by police responding to a report that a small sweeper vehicle had crashed into the side of a building at the Southbury Green shopping center.  Police say the man, whose name was not released, could have been unconscious for an extended time before he was found.  The initial investigation found the man might have been leaning out of the sweeper to pick up trash and may have hit the gas pedal by accident. Police said it did not appear the driver suffered any significant physical injuries in the crash, and he may have succumbed to the cold. Temperatures at the time were hovering around zero degrees.
