HOPKINS, Minn. (AP) - Police say a 51-year-old man has died in an industrial accident at a Minneapolis-area Supervalu grocery warehouse.

The Hopkins Police Department says the man was pinned under a piece of equipment and severely injured Sunday at the Supervalu Food Distribution Center in Hopkins. Responders pronounced him dead at the scene.

The man’s wife and a teamsters union identified him as Perry Goffard. His wife tells WCCO-TV that he had worked for the company for more than 15 years.

A Supervalu representative says the company is working with authorities to investigate and speculation regarding the cause of the incident is premature. The retailer is based in Eden Prairie.
