A man died in what police say appears to be a work-related accident with heavy equipment at a facility in south Houston.

The death occurred about 4:30 a.m. at 700 Holmes near South Main, according to the Houston Police Department.

Police
said a worker was operating a Bobcat-type piece of equipment to move
trash when he backed up and hit another worker. That man died at the
scene, police said.

Police said the area was very dark when the
men were working at the facility. Investigators were at the scene trying
to determine exactly what led to the apparent mishap.
