A dump truck driver was killed Friday afternoon after another truck backed into him in Brooklyn, police said.

First responders arrived at the Troy Ave. scene near Farragut Road in East Flatbush around 1:30 p.m. and found the 24-year-old victim lying on the ground, cops said.

Medics rushed the man to Kings County Hospital but he could not be saved.

Witnesses said that the victim was pinned between his own rig, the reversing dump truck and another vehicle outside the DeCostole Recycling and Transfer Station.

An employee at DeCostole Recycling would not comment when reached by phone.

The 31-year-old driver who ran over the victim remained at the scene. No charges were immediately filed.
