Canadian Tow-Truck Driver Killed At Job Site

Our condolences to this as-of-yet unnamed tow truck operator who died on Friday, Oct. 9, while unloading a vehicle.
Here's the Winnipeg Sun story:

WINNIPEG -- A tow-truck driver was killed Friday night in northern Manitoba after he was apparently pinned between his flatbed truck and the vehicle he was unloading.

The incident occurred at the towing company's yard in The Pas, Man. RCMP were contacted shortly before 7 p.m. after family members found the 49-year-old dead at the site.

The man was owner/operator of the tow truck, police said. RCMP said an investigation is in its early stages.

Foul play is not suspected. An autopsy has been ordered.
