WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. (AP) - A 29-year-old man has died after a semitractor-trailer fell on top of him in the Town of Auburndale.

The Wood County Sheriff’s Department says the incident is believed to be an accident.

Authorities were called to the 6200 block of Main Street in Auburndale at about 8:30 Friday morning. They arrived to find the man pulled from underneath the semi.

The man was brought to St. Joseph’s Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. His name will be released Saturday morning.

WAOW-TV reports the man was working under the semitractor-trailer when it rolled off a jack and crushed him.
