Man killed in truck mishap

Jackson County authorities say a man was killed while making a wood delivery with his dump truck.  The accident happened Tuesday afternoon in Parma Township, west of Jackson.  Undersheriff Chris Kuhl tells WILX-TV that that 36-year-old Jeff Teague of Parma Township was delivering wood to a home when his Ford truck had a mechanical problem.  Kuhl says the truck’s dump box became stuck in the upright position. The undersheriff says it appears that Teague went under the truck to fix it when it collapsed, crushing him between the frame and the bed.  Mlive.com says Teague operated Forever Green Tree Solutions, a tree removal company.  (AP)
