Man Killed After Getting Pinned Between Trucks in Windham

A man has died after getting pinned between two trucks in his driveway in Windham on Saturday.

Police were called to the man's home on Stanley Road shortly after 2 p.m. after getting a report of a two car crash with no injuries.

When they arrived, officers learned a man pinned himself between two trucks in his driveway.

Police said one truck was inoperable and was being repaired. It was side-by-side with another truck, which police believe is the truck the man was working on.

Investigators believe the man was trying to start up one truck from outside of the driver's side window when it lurched forward several feet and became pinned against the other.

Fire officials said the man was pinned between the two trucks and was conscious when firefighters arrived.

LifeStar was called to the scene, but was later canceled, firefighters said.

According to investigators, there was nobody in the trucks at the time of the incident. 

Connecticut State Police are investigating. Trooper First Class Tanya Compagnone described the incident as a "freak accident." 

Officials have not released the man's identity, but police said he was born in 1958.
