A Shepherd man was killed in a fatal industrial accident after being caught up underneath a bulldozer.
At 7:35 a.m. on Tuesday, the Shepherd Police Department responded to reports of an industrial accident at WDS Enterprises on E. Blanchard Road in Coe Township.
When police arrived, a 46-year-old Shepherd man was receiving life-saving measures from a co-worker before aid was continued by the police department, the Shepherd Tri-Township Fire Department, and the Isabella County Sheriff’s Office. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police believe the man was pulled under a bulldozer he had just gotten out of that went back into gear and started moving forward with no one inside. The bulldozer struck multiple semi-trailers. There were no additional injuries.
