BUTTERFIELD, Minn. (AP) - A 55-year-old man is dead after authorities say he was pinned between a semi-trailer and a loading dock in southern Minnesota.

KEYC-TV ( ) reports the accident happened early Sunday morning.

The Watonwan County Sheriff’s Office says David James Baumann was found dead at the loading dock of Butterfield Foods in Butterfield.
