PHOENIX (AP) - A worker has died after being pinned against a loading dock by a tractor trailer at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, authorities said Wednesday.

Phoenix police said officers responded to a 6 a.m. call Wednesday about an injured person at a UPS cargo area on the southern part of the airport property.

They say 50-year-old Scott Morris was pronounced dead at the scene by Phoenix Fire Department paramedics.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Morris was a UPS employee.

Police said the 67-year-old driver of the tractor trailer was evaluated for impairment, but that doesn’t appear to be a factor.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating the work-related incident along with Phoenix police.
