The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has opened an investigation into an industrial accident that left a 24-year-old man dead Monday in south suburban Park Forest.

Milos Grujic, who was employed as a delivery driver by Delta Currier Group in Alsip, was killed when a load from a powered industrial truck became unstable and struck him, according to OSHA and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. He lived in the 200 block of 10th Avenue in Seattle, Washington.

He was standing next to his truck while another worker unloaded large water main pipes from it at a construction site, according to a statement from the Village of Park Forest. Several of the pipes fell off the truck and crushed him.

Grujic was pronounced dead at noon Monday at St. James Hospital in Olympia Fields, the medical examiner’s office said. An autopsy Tuesday found that he died from multiple blunt force injuries, and his death was ruled an accident.
