Posted by wlpo on June 15, 2016

A Hampshire man was found dead under a trailer Tuesday afternoon in Genoa.

The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office and Genoa Fire and Police crews went out to Adkins Milk Hauling after getting a 911 call about someone who was under a tipped tractor trailer shortly before 3:00. Thirty-one year old Matthew Lenz was found to be under the loaded trailer.

The DeKalb County Coroner’s Office pronounced Lenz dead at the scene. He was an employee of Adkins Milk Hauling.

While police say they don’t believe foul play was involved in the accident, the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office and OHSA are still investigating the incident.
