Man Crushed to Death by Dump Truck


A man accidentally died Tuesday afternoon after the Parma Township Fire Department reports the bed of his dump truck fell on him.

36-year-old Jeff Teague was delivering wood to a home on the 13000 block of West Michigan Avenue in his older model Ford dump truck. The dump box became stuck upright and Teague went underneath to fix it, when the bed came free and killed him.

Police say he was crushed between the frame and the bed of the truck. Teague was pronounced dead at the scene.

The incident is currently still under investigation.
