It appears that 29-year-old John Victor Vanslytman was on a ladder outside of his vehicle while working on it in the parking lot of the truck stop. While there, authorities say that a tractor-trailer turning somehow pinned Vanslytman between the semi and his truck.

As a result of the collision, Vanslytman succumbed to his injuries. There were no other injured parties. It's unclear right now if authorities plan to file citations or charges.

Maybe there will be charges later on as authorities finalize the details, or maybe something unusual happened here the semi driver couldn't avoid. Most of the time, when someone becomes pinned between two vehicles, it's the person responsible for the moving vehicle that did something wrong.

But is that what happened here? How exactly did the truck driver here turn so close to someone's vehicle that they managed to pin the victim? I can't help feeling there's more to this story authorities haven't told the public yet.
