CREATED Nov. 13, 2012 - UPDATED: Nov. 14, 2012

One man has been crushed to death under a dump truck in Parma Township Tuesday afternoon.

Jackson County Undersheriff Chris Kuhl says that Jeff Teague, 36, from Parma Township was delivering wood to a home on the 13300 block of West Michigan Avenue.

Teague was using an older Ford dump truck and the dump box became stuck in the upright position.

Teague apparently went underneath the dump to fix it when it apparently collapsed, crushing him between the frame and the bed.


 

One man has been killed in Parma Township while apparently trying to repair a dump truck.

Jackson County Undersheriff Chris Kuhl says the man was working on residential property on the 13300 block of West Michigan Avenue shortly after noon.

The bed of the dump truck was elevated and the man was apparently underneath it when the bed collapsed on top of him.

The man's name and age have not yet been released, and it's unclear if the man lived at that property.

No one else was hurt in the accident.
