OWASSO, Oklahoma - An Owasso trash collector was injured when he was hit by a car around 7 a.m. Tuesday morning, January 9. 

Owassoisms reports the man was working his route on 177th East Avenue between 96th Street North and 106th Street North when he was hit with enough force to throw him out of his shoes and across the road.
