A Department of Sanitation garage is being renamed to honor a veteran sanitation worker who was run over by a street sweeper in June.
On June 21, Steven Frosch, 43, was working on a street sweeper when another worker accidentally hit him with another street sweeper and pinned Frosch between the two large vehicles. Police found him unconscious and lying on the ground with severe body trauma.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
To honor Frosch for his dedication to the department, his work garage, Queens West 5A in Maspeth, was named after him on Wednesday.
Frosch had been with the sanitation department for 15 years before the tragic accident took his life.
