Man possibly crushed by trailers at Bolingbrook truck stop

Pennsylvanian man’s death appears accidental, police said

A man who died at the truck stop in Bolingbrook appeared to have been crushed between two trailers, police said.

About 9:50 a.m. Tuesday, officers responded to Greater Chicago Truck Stop at 510 S. Bolingbrook Drive for a report of an “unresponsive” person, and discovered a man on the ground between two trailers, Bolingbrook police said.

Bolingbrook police Lt. Anthony Columbus said it appeared the 42-year-old man from Pennsylvania was “crushed between two trailers.”

“The victim’s semi is being inspected for faulty equipment. The unoccupied semi may have rolled, crushing the victim,” Columbus said.

He said the man was an over-the-road truck driver.

Paramedics from the Bolingbrook Fire Department had responded to the scene and determined the man was dead, police said. Will County Coroner’s Office was contacted to respond to the scene, police said.

“At this time, this appears to be an accidental death and foul play is not suspected,” police said.
