A truck driver was been killed by the load from his own truck in Limerick, Montgomery Co. (WPVI)

Police say a truck driver is dead after a load of PVC pipe he was unloading in Montgomery County fell on him.

It happened at 7:50 a.m. Friday in the 100 block of Lightcap Road in Limerick.

Police say the 62-year-old owner/operator of the truck, who was from Texas, arrived at a business with the load of pipe before the business opened.

He apparently tried to unload some of the material himself, police say, when it shifted and fell on him.

Employees arrived and found the man under the pipes.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

OSHA and other officials are investigating.
