A man was killed during an accident at a commercial trucking yard in Pomona when he hit his head against the side of a trailer, police said Sunday.
The man was helping guide a driver as he pulled a trailer out of a parking space. The victim was standing near or in between two empty, unhitched parking trailers. The driver accidentally hit one of the trailers, which caused the victim to lose his balance and hit his head against the side of the other trailer, the Pomona Police Department reported.
Paramedics arriving at the location pronounced the man dead at the scene.
The injury occurred a little after 11:05 p.m. Saturday at 2894 Ficus St., where the driver remained on scene and cooperated with police, officials said.
He was not intoxicated and had a valid commercial drivers license. Neither the victim nor driver were California residents, police said.
Pomona Police Department’s Major Accident Investigation Team asked anyone who witnessed the death to call them at 909-802-7741.
