A 40 year old man was killed while he was working on a truck trailer at the JW Transportation Company on Durham Road yesterday, July 7, 2016. The mishap occurred, when a vehicle being serviced fell on top of him. He was crushed to death. The trailer was being supported by a forklift, when that vehicle rolled backwards, authorities said. It is unknown if wheel chocks were in use for the forklift or not.
The business, located behind the Comstock Transmission shop is a separate , stand alone business. There are no signs for this business visible from Durham Road. The exact cause of the accident will be investigated by OSHA. The report should be released by the end of the year.
Police closed the entrance to the repair shop. Trucks that had to go in there for business purposes, were diverted.
