Lakewood man crushed at Port of L.A. is ID’d

A worker crushed to death by an empty freight trailer at the Port of Los Angeles was a 53-year-old Lakewood man, the coroner’s office reported Sunday.

John Robert Kiser was crushed about 7:20 p.m. Saturday at Berth 229, a large container dock on Terminal Island, according to the coroner and Shawn Lenske of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

He was “pinned and crushed by an empty trailer that was moved by a utility tractor,” Lenske said.

The accident was being investigated by the Division of Occupational Safety and Health, Lenske said.
