(ATLANTA, GA)– The Atlanta Police Department is reporting that a man has died following a freak accident involving a ticket machine in a parking garage.
The incident was reported on Thursday just before midnight at the parking garage off Peachtree Street by Colony square.
Authorities say they received a call about a car accident and arrived to the area to find a man wedged between a ticket machine and his truck door.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigators believe that the victim drove past the machine and opened his door to grab a ticket.
The victim, however, failed to put the vehicle in park and somehow became wedged between the machine and his door after his arm became stuck.
No other details have been made public at this time.
