Tow Worker Found Crushed By Vehicle

A 37-year-old man was found dead at a tow yard with a vehicle on top of him Saturday morning, according to the San Diego Police Department (SDPD).  

At approximately 7:40 a.m., an employee at Kurios Towing in Otay Mesa found the worker and called SDPD.

When police arrived the man was pronounced dead at the scene. Investigators suspect a red pick-up truck may have flipped over and crushed the man.

The incident likely happened during the night, according to police reports.

Police and medical teams are on the scene investigating, but officers say no one has been arrested and no crime has been committed. The incident appears to be a workplace accident. 

The victim's name has not been released by the medical examiner yet.
