Authorities in eastern Iowa are investigating a workplace death. It happened on Tuesday night at a west Davenport warehouse. Police say the victim, 50-year-old Eugene Perry Jr. of Owensboro, Kentucky, was working by himself in the warehouse yard at the time.

Cops say Perry was attempting to hook a dolly connected to a semi-tractor to a trailer when he was pinned between them. Perry was declared dead shortly after being taken by ambulance to a Davenport hospital.
