Angel Tubens Killed in Brooklyn, NY, Truck Accident

Brooklyn, NY -- December 19, 2016, Angel Tubens was fatally injured following an accident in which he was run over by a co-worker.

According to details released by OSHA and other authorities, the incident occurred around 10:00 p.m. in the Marine Park area.

Officials stated that Tubens and his co-worker, 56-year-old Danks, were unloading Christmas trees in a lot off of Stuart Street and Avenue U. As Tubens was unloading trees, Danks for some reason put their box truck into reverse. The vehicle backed over Tubens, pinning him.

Rescue crews were able to extract Tubens from the scene and transport him to Lutheran Hospital for treatment. He later died there.

Police later charged Danks for driving without a license. It's unclear if any additional charges are being considered.

No further information has been released.
