Work Related Accident

By  | 

It would be a horrifying scene for anyone who was on the job after midnight at Midwest Logistics in DeKalb.

Thirty-one-year-old Herminio Sangabriel Martinez was pronounced dead early Saturday morning at Kishwaukee Community Hospital.

The DeKalb County coroner's office says Martinez had just finished unloading a semi-trailer when the semi backed up, pinning him between the trailer and the loading dock wall.

The accident is under investigation and an inquest will take place at a later date.
