JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said a man in his 50s died when the driver of a semi-truck backed the cab up to a trailer to connect it. JSO said the man was pinned between the trailer and the semitruck cab.

This happened around 11:35 Tuesday morning in the parking lot of Maxwell House Coffee at 735 East Bay Street. The man and a woman were there as contractors, and not employees of Maxwell House. JSO said they were there to pick up a trailer with Freightliner.
