A 51-year-old Markham man is dead after an industrial accident in Vaughan Friday.

York Regional Police were called to Doney Cres., near Keele St. and Hwy. 7, around 6:40 a.m., Sgt. Clint Whitney said.

"When officers arrived, they found a man trapped between two large transport trucks, the kind that carry shipping containers," Whitney said. "He was without vital signs."

Emergency crews were unsuccessful in their attempts to resuscitate the man. He was declared dead at the scene.

The investigation is continuing.
