A Kenyan man is dead and State Police are investigating after an accident at a repair shop in Newark.
Troopers say around 9:30 Friday night, 31-year-old Nicholas Njenga of Middletown and another employee at Savanna Auto Care were working on the hydraulic lift gate of a company truck.
Troopers say Njenga was on the lift gate when the other employee went under the truck to do some troubleshooting. That’s when the lift gate started to operate, and Njenga was pinned between the gate and the truck. He died from his injuries at Christiana Hospital.
He was subsequently removed from the scene by EMS and transported to the Christiana Hospital Trauma Center where he succumbed to his injuries.
The accident is still under investigation by State Police.
