EDINBURG TWP, Ohio -- A man is dead after being pinned between two semi-tractor trailers at a truck stop on Saturday.

The Ravenna Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating the fatal accident that occurred shortly after 2 p.m.

Frank C. Shackelford, age 57, of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, had parked his semi-tractor trailer behind another semi-tractor trailer in an Eastbound rest area of Interstate 76.

Shackelford exited his vehicle and walked in front of the cab. The truck rolled forward, and pinned him against the trailer of the vehicle in front of his.

The driver of the other vehicle was not in the truck at the time of the accident.

The preliminary investigation reveals that the emergency brakes on Shackelford's truck were not engaged.
