Man dies after being pinned between two dumpsters

A man has died hours after being pinned between two dumpsters at a Lexington landfill.

It happened just before 11 Wednesday morning on Hedger Lane, just off Interstate 64.

Officials say 27-year-old Jesse Hodges, of Morehead, was unloading some material in one dumpster, when a chain connected to a second dumpster malfunctioned.

Hodges ended up trapped between the two dumpsters.

Hodges was taken by helicopter to UK Hospital, where the Fayette County coroner says he died just before 3 Wednesday afternoon.

The coroner says Hodges died from multiple blunt force trauma.
