TOPPENISH, Wash. (AP) - A hop farm worker was killed in an industrial accident in Toppenish.

The Yakima County sheriff’s office says 22-year-old David Alonso Gonzalez-Rebolledo was pulling an empty 25-foot flatbed trailer with a small tractor Sunday when he hit a parked vehicle. The trailer broke loose, rolled into the back of the tractor and pinned down the driver.

KIMA reports ((backslash)https://bit.ly/1pDO5a5) it happened at the Shinn and Son farm. The farm says every worker completes a safety course and gives written consent of understanding afterward.

The state Department of Labor and Industries is investigating.
