HOOVER, Ala. (WIAT) — Hoover Police in Alabama say a truck driver was killed Friday morning in the parking lot of the Home Depot on Highway 280 in Inverness when his truck rolled over him.

Hoover Police Lt. Keith Czeskleba tells us they are still working to confirm the details, but they believe the driver was doing some sort of inspection when the truck went into gear, rolling over him.

Police say it appears he tried to get into the cab to stop the truck and got tripped up.

The truck did not have anything to do with Home Depot; police believe the driver parked there overnight. 

As of Friday morning at 8 a.m., they are searching for the victim’s next of kin. They aren’t sure if he’s local, but he did have an out of state drivers license.

Home Depot Public Relations Department tells us they are aware of the incident and are still gathering information at this time. They say they will contact us as they receive additional information.
