A body of a 77-year-old man was found in North Toledo Monday night, but Toledo police said it appeared that his death was accidental.
The body of Gerald T. Rabideau was discovered pinned between the door of a semi tractor and a trailer about 6:40 p.m. at the I-75 Industrial Park, 3863 Lagrange St.
Police said it appeared Mr. Rabideau was moving a trailer close to two other trailers.
Apparently, after getting out of the cab of the tractor he was operating with the driver's door open, the rig rolled back and pinned him between the door of the tractor and the next trailer. He was pronounced dead at the scene by Toledo firefighters, police said.
