A 72 year old man was killed today in an industrial accident on a south side job site.
Police say the victim was warming up his dump truck at the job site on West Hutchins Place, when he walked across the lot to his personal vehicle. While he stood there, the dump truck jumped into gear and started skidding across the lot, smashing into the victim and his truck.
He was run over and was killed instantly. The runaway vehicle kept going until slamming into a second vehicle.
