PLAINFIELD, Ind. (AP) — An Indianapolis man has been identified as the Amazon employee who died following an accident involving a forklift in central Indiana.

Plainfield police Capt. Jill Lees says officers responded Sunday afternoon to an Amazon Fulfillment Center and found emergency crews working on 59-year-old Philip Terry. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Lees said the investigation is in its early stages but police were treating the death as accidental.
