LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock Police are investigating a deadly accident that killed a delivery truck driver Friday morning around 1 a.m.

Officials are saying the driver was accidentally run over by his truck. Other employees pulled the delivery truck driver free and began CPR. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

Lubbock Police have identified the man as 56-year-old Myron Ray Roberts. The police report says Roberts was standing at the rear of his truck when the truck and trailer moved backwards and pinned him against a block wall.

Dean Foods released a statement saying:

We are deeply saddened one of our long-time employees was involved in a fatal accident on our property in Lubbock.

We are working with local authorities to provide any information that may be helpful but are not releasing details broadly at this time.

Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with his family, friends and colleagues during this difficult time.

The investigation is ongoing.
