Emergency responders found a 61-year-old man pinned between the dump box, which is the part that lifts upward on a dump truck, and the truck’s body. He was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. Authorities believe that the man, whose name has not been released yet, was working on the frame of the truck when the dump box came down upon him.
