An overnight workplace accident tragically killed a 19-year-man Wednesday night. In addition, the fatal workplace accident happened at a Pontoon Beach, Illinois business. Furthermore, Zachery Boland was killed at the Saddle Creek Corporation after he fell and hit his head while on a forklift.
At the time of the workplace accident Boland was loading appliances onto the back of a semi. Before Boland could finish loading all the pieces onto the truck, the driver of the semi thought he was finished and began to drive away. As a result, Boland fell backwards off the forklift and hit his head on the plate of the loading dock. Sadly Boland was pronounced dead roughly a half hour later. No other information is known about the accident at this time.
