Major Tom Torregrossa said, "The victim was actually unloading a fork lift from a trailer on a rollback style trailer as the forklift began exiting the track it fell over on top of the victim."
Authorities say 56 year old Isaac Luffy was taken to St. Francis Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. Police say Luffy owned Arkla recycling and the building where the tragic accident happened. Monroe police say they don't see this type of accidents very often.
Major Torregrossa said, "Not very much of industrial types, no they're very rare."
We called plunks, the truck company working with Luffy to unload the forklift, but our call wasn't returned. Police say no criminal charges will be filed, Luffy's death is being ruled an accident. Investigators say people should be mindful of the dangers of working with heavy machinery.
Major Torregrossa said, "Just being aware of your surroundings and the type of equipment you're dealing with at that particular time and the capabilities of that particular equipment."
