Reports: One dead in work accident outside Spokane Produce

An industrial accident drew heavy police presence to the Spokane Produce facility at 1905 S. Geiger Blvd. early Thursday morning.

Investigators were focusing their efforts on two semi trucks parked near the entrance of what appears to be a parking lot for Spokane Produce delivery trucks. Officer Shane Phillips, a spokesperson for the Spokane Police Department, confirmed there was an accident but would not specify what happened or who was involved.

The Spokane County Medical Examiner’s office confirmed that a man died in the incident.
