The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating after a Wisconsin man died Wednesday, pinned between two semi trucks at a warehouse in southwest suburban Bolingbrook.

Kevin A. Schneider, 57, was found unresponsive in the parking lot of the R.R. Donnelley Warehouse in the 1000 block of Windham, according to the Will County coroner’s office. Initial reports indicate that he had been pinned between two semi trucks, one of which was backing up.

He was employed by the Wisconsin-based trucking company Paper Transport Inc., according to OSHA.

Schneider, of Green Bay, Wisconsin, was pronounced dead at 1:53 p.m. Wednesday at Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital, according to the coroner’s office. An autopsy Thursday found that he died from multiple crush injuries, but did not rule on the manner of his death.

OSHA has opened an investigation into the fatality, spokeswoman Rhonda Burke said Monday. She did not provide additional details.
