SILVER CREEK TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A 69-year-old southwestern Michigan man has been killed after getting pinned between a cherry picker he was parking and a barn wall.

The Kalamazoo Gazette and WOOD-TV report that Roger Molter, of Benton Harbor, was repositioning the equipment Saturday afternoon on a Silver Creek Township farm at the time of the accident.

The Cass County sheriff’s office says Molter was found by a family member. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
