FRUITLAND PARK, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a Lake County appliance store worker was accidentally killed while helping load a washing machine into a customer's vehicle.
Fruitland Park Police Chief Michael Fewless tells the Orlando Sentinel (bit.ly/1OTg0K9) the incident happened Wednesday.
Police say the unidentified worker offered to help the customer load the washer in his vehicle and waited by the curb.
Fewless says the employee started readying to load the washer when the man accidentally hit the gas, reversing the vehicle into the building, pinning the worker.
The worker was taken to a hospital, where he died.
Fewless says police are still determining whether the driver will be charged.
