OCHLOCKNEE, GA (WALB) –The Thomas County Sheriff's Office is investigating an accident at an Ochlocknee industrial plant that led to the death of a Pennsylvania man.

Just after 10 Wednesday night, authorities say an Oil-Dri Company driver was backing up his trailer at a loading dock.

Unknown to the driver, 63-year old Kenneth Herman of Knox, Pennsylvania was standing behind the truck.

The trailer pinned Herman against the concrete loading dock, crushing him. He was rushed to Archbold Memorial and later transferred to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital where he died yesterday from his injuries.

Authorities say Herman worked for an independent trucking company.
